2018 Ontario Festival of the Arts


September 15, 2018  •  11 AM – 6 PM

Thank you to all of the wonderfully talented artists who submitted applications to be sponsored with a free booth at the Ontario Festival of the Arts this year. It was a difficult choice. We wish we had more booths!
Congratulations to artists Andrea Benitez, Tom Cypert, Bob Hurton, and Jimmy Purcell!
We look forward to seeing everyone at the festival 9/15 11am-6pm and then join us for post-festival Third Saturday activities across the street 6-9pm!

More information coming soon...
