Art lovers unite! Now in its 58th year, the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair is back with over 360 artists and makers specializing in various mediums. This includes photography, painting, mixed media, ceramics and more. The event will feature art installations and creative talks, as well as a beer garden and food trucks.
The festival began in 1989, when local jazz artists were booked to perform at the Kew Gardens Bandshell in the beach area of Toronto. Now celebrating her 31st anniversary, the festival has blossomed into a month long mid-summer event that attracts thousands of fans and makes a major contribution to promoting Canadian jazz excellence locally and on the world stage.

At this point, we are remaining positive that things will change towards the end of the summer and that we can have a second attempt at a festival in some form later on in the year. That will be dependent on the city and the precautionary measures they want us to follow. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and be able to make more of an educated decision as we all proceed during this situation. In the next few weeks, we will be discussing and brainstorming ideas for a ‘virtual’ festival to be held in July (tentative). Please stay tuned for more details!
