Artfest Kingston, Summer Art & Craft Festival
Canada 150 - 1867 - 2017
This year, Canadian's are celebrating Canada's 150th birthday! Why not celebrate it with Artfest Kingston! Join in on the excitement with FREE programming that includes art and craft workshops, a poetry tent, craft beer tent, music, face painting, great food and much more. Located at City Park, where there's also a splash area for the kids, Artfest Kingston is the place to be this Canada Day!
Artfest Kingston will exhibit over 150 booths with fine art and craft items from across Canada for you, your family, and friends to choose from. Our artists and artisans are selected during a jury process so you will find the most unique, one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork at our show.
NEW this year is the First Nations Artist Pavillion. You will definitely want to drop over to view First Nations art and craft masterpieces! Our First Nations Pavilion will showcase a group of professional Indigenous artists, who will also serve in a mentoring role for a selection of Indigenous youth artists (age 18-30). Additionally, we will feature First Nations cultural programming that will include storytelling, traditional craft demonstrations and workshops, dance performance, singing, poetry and drumming.
There's something for everyone at Artfest Kingston! We encourage you to bring out the family and celebrate Canada 150 with Artfest. Supporting our Canadian artists and artisans this Canada Day is the perfect way to appreciate, give honour and respect our country and, the talented residents that live within it!
