At Artfest, introducing children to the arts is one of our mandates and we have seen that creative kids become our innovative future leaders.
As your family strolls through Memorial Park in Port Credit you will notice many interesting things that the artists have created. Take advantage of opportunities to talk to artists and artisans from far and wide and learn about the methods they use for creating their art. There are amazing things to discover! We hope you’ll come and experience Artfest Kids fun!
