Kawartha Arts Festival

On behalf of the Kawartha Arts Festival, We would like to thank the over three thousand people who came to visit the festival this year. We would also like to thank the ninety two incredible artists we had as part of the festival this year. You are the reason that the volunteers work so hard for over eleven months to put on this two day festival. Few can comprehend the incredible amount of hours it takes to put on a two day festival. Lastly, we would like to thank the eight incredible selfless volunteers that make this festival possible. They don’t do it for any gain or get anything out of it. They simply do it for the passion we feel for sharing the fine art of these 92 incredible artists with the Kawarthas.

This festival would not be possible without Caroline, Bridget, Helen, Christina, Kris, Clive, Lori and Geoff.
And of course a huge thank you to ours founders and queens of the festival Maud and Lynn.

See you next year!

Aug 31 – Sept 1, 2024 – Labour Day Weekend

Did you know?

The Kawartha Arts Festival was first held in 1989 and started off as a small collection of artists gathering together to give something back to the local arts community. It has since grown into one of the largest art festivals in Southern Ontario and attracts thousands of visitors each year.

The Kawartha Arts Festival is a non-profit organization run by dedicated volunteers. It is kept going by the generous donations given each year by the show’s patrons, and we would like to thank each and every one of you to keep the Art Festival growing more unique each year.
