The Arts Area @ Ontario Festival of the Arts

The Arts Area is sponsoring booths at the Ontario Festival of the Arts for our members!

The Ontario Festival of the Arts brings visual and performing artists together with an audience to demonstrate that art is accessible and brings value to everyday life. For visual artists, the Festival will create a market place for functional, decorative and visual artists to display and sell their work. The Festival will be extensively advertised to attract a suitable audience.

The event will be held on the east end of the Ontario Arts District (200 block of South Lemon Avenue in Ontario.  Surrounding the campuses of the Ontario Museum of History & Art and Chaffey Community Museum of Art) on Saturday, September 15, 2018, 11 AM to 6 PM.
