Artfest is launching a new Art Market in Kingston, ON

The Portsmouth Art Market is an exciting new initiative in Kingston ON. Kingston has become well known in the region as an art and culture hub and is bustling with activity all summer. Portsmouth is a delightful hamlet within the city, set across from the sailing club and the newly re-purposed Kingston Penitentiary, where daily tours are booked solid.

Artfest is excited about expanding the opportunities for artists to sell their work in a new outdoor venue in Aberdeen Park. The market will be open on Saturdays from 9am-5pm from July 8- August 26. The daily exhibit fee is $65. The full 8 week season is $475.

We are looking for artists and artisans to exhibit in the market. Paintings, photography, pottery, glass, jewellery, clothing, bodycare, gourmet food, woodcrafts etc are all welcome to be part of the program. This is a juried art market, and items must be handmade in Canada. Please complete the application below if you are interested. For more information please contact Lory MacDonald at or call 705-812-2914.
