What an honour it was to be nominated for a Huron County Cultural Award! The Goderich Makers Market was nominated under the Community Contribution category which recognizes the significant impact someone has made on the cultural community of Huron County. After such an exciting season, which saw more than 5,000 people visit us at the Huron County Museum, it feels pretty darn great to be recognized.
What are the Huron County Cultural Awards, anyway? Presented by Huron Arts & Heritage Network, the Cultural Awards celebrate the best in arts, culture and heritage in the County.
