Discover Artfest 2018 This May!
Here at Artfest Ontario, we hold true to one indisputable truth; there is an artist inside all of us.
This fact drives us toward creation. It drives us to celebration. It drives us every day to give each and every Canadian a unique chance to interact with the arts in order to bring forth and inspire the artist living within.
