Annual business fair returns Feb. 21 to Gold Canyon

MountainBrook Village in Gold Canyon will host the fifth annual Gold Canyon Business Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 21, in the community’s Superstition Center, 5782 S. Mountain-Brook Drive in Gold Canyon.

Event admission and parking are free. A variety of businesses and services will be represented. There will be door prizes, entertainment, food and fun.

MountainBrook Village Activity Director Pat Stemple and Gold Canyon Business Association President Chris Bukovac, who is a MountainBrook resident, will provide support, resources and expertise.

Doors will open to the public at 9 a.m. sharp.

There will be a variety of businesses, including: home improvement, wellness, landscaping, goods and services we may want and need. Each vendor will offer a door prize valued at $25 or more, which makes your chances of winning one of the prizes very good.

Mountain Brew Coffee House will sell coffee and pastries for the morning and sandwiches for lunch. Gary’s Desert Dogs, a new addition to our event, will sell “doglicious” gourmet hot dogs with all the fixings out on the patio.

Color Me Music, with the talented singer and songwriter, Tina Vale, and artist, Gina Ribaudo, will provide entertainment. Ms. Vale is appearing weekly on Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Gold Canyon Golf Resort and Tuesdays at the Rodeo Lounge. She really rocks the house. You can visit her website at www.tinavale.net for more information. Ms. Ribaudo will create one of her original signature paintings during the event, and you will have the opportunity to bid on this one-of-a-kind unique painting.

Good luck to the highest bidder, who will walk away with one of the artist’s coveted originals.

Ms. Ribaudo is Arizona’s proclaimed mural artist. Check out her mural of Route 66 at Mickey D’s Cafe, 1408 W. Apache Trial in Apache Junction. She will create the mural of your dreams for that wall or room that needs something special. Check out www.ilovemurals.com.
