Artfest Spring Shows are Here! “Tis the season to be jolly.”


It certainly seems that way with the launching of Artfest Ontario’s 2018 season. We started this jolly year off with Artfest Toronto at the Distillery on the Victoria Day Weekend and are now moving onto Artfest Port Credit this coming weekend May 25-27. Then we roll into Kingston for our flagship show, Artfest Kingston on Canada Day weekend. Next, enjoy your summer Saturdays strolling among our Artisans at the Portsmouth Art Market in Aberdeen Park, Kingston. Head back to Toronto at the Distillery where you can enjoy our Fine Artists end of summer show on Labour Day weekend. Then wrap it all up with our newest Christmas show in Kingston on December 6-9. Oh the joy of it all!

This is our fourth year for Artfest Port Credit. We are a growing festival offering something new each year. Enjoy the sneak preview of the NEW ArtPix Children's Digital Art Gallery Wall and Panthea the singing Diva Stilt Walker. Come out and say “hello” to your favourite artist or craft artist from past years. Peek in on our new exhibitors and discover what is new in their creative products lines. Find that special item you just can’t live without. Nothing beats that feeling of purchasing a handmade item from its creator.  Artists love discussing their art process, techniques and inspiration. That is what makes each one of us so unique.

Artfest Port Credit is the place to bring your children for inspirational art projects. The smiles that beam from our children’s art tent while these little minds expand and little hands create are contagious.  They love the sense of accomplishment; big artists start as little artists.

Join us this weekend May 25-27 for Artfest in beautiful Port Credit. We are dedicated to promoting our fantastic Canadian Talent, and bringing the fun and beauty of art to all: families, children, adults or seniors.
It’s all in the name “Artfest”, a festival full of truly talented Canadian Artisans.
