The Artfest shows may be finished for 2017, but our team has been busy planning the 2018 events. There is lots to do: grant reports, grant applications, partnership building, venue booking, and website updating. We are also busy brainstorming for exciting new programing features, setting up the new show applications, booking our musicians and performing artists, updating 100’s of event listings, designing our 2018 graphics, and of course having some playtime too!
We are very pleased to announce a new Artfest event for 2018. For a long time we have been looking for a suitable venue for a new indoor Christmas show. We have found it! Artfest will launch a Christmas show in Kingston, ON Dec 6-9, 2018 at the Kingston Thousand Islands Sportsplex. This is a large venue that will allow the show to grow for many years. We are very excited!
Artfest show applications will be available in mid November. This new start date and application deadline will allow us to finalize our artist line up earlier in the year.
Meanwhile, be sure to visit the Artfest artists and artisans at many other Christmas and Holiday shows over the next two months. They have been busy putting the finishing touches on their items for the gift-giving season. They are counting on you!
