Artfest Kingston | AQW Events

Saturday, July 1, 2017 to Monday, July 3, 2017

Artfest Kingston takes place annually on Canada’s birthday over the July 1st weekend. We are inviting you to join us this year in Kingston for a huge Canada Day celebration.
As Canada’s first capitol, the entire city is ready to party and celebrate! To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, we have designed many special activities for both local Canadians and our many friends from South of the Border. More than 150 juried artists and artisans from all over Ontario, Quebec and the East Coast will be exhibiting at the three-day show. The event is free for visitors and will take place July 1-3, 2017 in beautiful City Park, Kingston, Ontario. The festival activities encompass multiple art and culture disciplines under the overall theme Imagine Canada: Explore our Future. A multitude of events and performances have been thoughtfully created to be hands-on for all ages. The projects celebrate diversity and explore who we are today as Strong, Proud and Free - and who we might become as Canadians of the future. The result will be the creation of NEW original works of art, music, poetry, performance, sculpture, drumming performance, dance, and an 80ft Word Art chalkboard.

Professional artists will encourage the participants to Imagine Canada: Explore our Future and facilitate each creative discipline... The wide variety of activities will help build and unite a stronger community, create memorable experiences and leave lasting legacies of newly created art for future Canadian generations to enjoy.

Come to Artfest Kingston this Canada Day Weekend and assist in creating wonderful memories for the entire family. It’s going to be a blast! Kingston itself has so much to offer for non-stop adventure and exploring: Fort Henry, The Pen Tours, Martello Alley, Thousand Islands Cruises, The Historic Downtown, brew pubs, huge Canada Day fireworks on July 1st, and award winning restaurants. See you there!
