Artfest Ontario hosts four art & craft shows yearly, showcasing Canada’s talented artists, musicians and more.
Our mission is to sustain the artistic culture that has been developed by Canada’s wealth of talented artists, to inform people on the societal and economical importance of sustaining the local art industry, and most importantly to give the public a chance to experience and interact with the art, crafts, and the art community.
With our Artfest Kids program, our vision is to give the next generation of artists the inspiration to create, the means to artistically express themselves, and the opportunity to create, showcase and develop their artistic talent. Founder Lory Macdonald has a passion for fostering the next generation of artists and sustaining the artistic community for generations to come.
