First Annual #GoldenYeg Awards Night – March 25, 2015


Chicken Scratch officially presents the First Annual Golden Yeg Awards, hosted by El Cortez Tequila Bar and Kitchen in Old Strathcona!

They ran a campaign to bring exposure to local artists and creators in Edmonton. These artists have agreed to gather together for one big night of exhibition and publicity! They could use the support of Edmontonians!

Chicken Scratch will kick the night off with drinking and mingling, allowing for browsing and selling of artistic display. You will have the opportunity to meet some of Edmonton’s freshest talent and even buy anything that catches your fancy! After an hour or so, we will be presenting the most popular, stylistic and unique artists with awards!

The artists that take home the Golden Yegs will be given commission contracts at our store! We’re still knocking out the details, but we need your help, Edmonton!

Please come out to show your support for local talent, local businesses and have a good time! We look forward to seeing you there!
