The art fair runs from Apr. 16–19 and each day offers something new and unique.
Apr. 16 – Dress to Express, our gala event, gives you the opportunity to wear that thing you’ve always wanted to but didn’t have the place for. Go wild! Dress up or dress down, just express yourself.
Face of Art Runway lets artists be seen alongside their artwork as they walk down the runway, allowing attendees to put a face to the piece.
Apr. 17 – Art Ignites begins the youth-centred program, designed for students from Grades 8 to 12 (1–5p.m.). Students get to participate in art workshops, speak to artists exhibiting at the art fair and take part in a panel discussion just for them. This event is open to everyone of all ages.
