The Grimsby Wayzgoose started in 1979 as a small gathering of friends and colleagues that attracted about 300 visitors. Since then it has grown into an eagerly awaited annual event with 45 to 50 artisans exhibiting their creations for the more than 2000 people who regularly attend the event. Participants and visitors come from across Ontario, Quebec and the North Eastern states. There are also often a few travelers from Europe, Japan and across the U.S. who find their way to Grimsby to enjoy and appreciate this fascinating craft.
The Wayzgoose Anthology has been part of the tradition since 1981. Each contributing artist creates a sample of work in a format that can be bound into a book. These sections are known as signatures, and the signatures from all the contributing artists are organized and hand bound into a volume that is sought after and cherished by many bibliophiles. In honour of the 35th anniversary of Wayzgoose a special juried call for signatures was distributed across North America and in Europe; these signatures will form a special extra section of the 2013 Wayzgoose Anthology. Sales of the Wayzgoose Anthology help to offset the costs associated with Wayzgoose; the 2013 Anthology will be available on the 27th; many back issues are also available.
The impact that Wayzgoose has on culture and tourism in the Grimsby area is significant, both because of the number of people that come to town for the event and for the potential it has to generate repeat visitors. Wayzgoose provides a wonderful opportunity to experience first-hand the traditions that turned us into a literate society. We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones on Saturday, April 27th.
