Get Ready to Rock at Artfest Toronto 2018

Artfest events always present performances by wonderful musicians to enhance the great atmosphere for visitors. We keep the music low-key so it doesn’t overpower the art scene, yet engaging to make your time with us a rockin' good time. The show opens Saturday with Andy Griffiths and his energetic and passionate rootsy-folkin' rock tunes. Listen to his hit Running on Empty and get ready for a memorable performance at Artfest Toronto this Victoria Day long weekend.
