Arts & Cultural Events

Paint The Park

We’re thrilled to showcase the talents of local plein air artists as they create beautiful works of art throughout Eaton Park. 

Festival goers will have the unique opportunity to observe these artists in action, and ask questions about their creative process.

As you stroll through you’ll see the works evolving and taking shape. Watch as they capture the beauty of the natural surroundings or personal inspirations while bringing them to life on their canvases.

Followed by a Silent Auction in the Art Tent by the stage between 3 and 4pm.

July 29th | 10am until 2pm | Eaton Park

Peace Hall Art Show and Sale

The action doesn’t end there! Artists participating in Paint the Park will have previously created art works exhibited at the Peace Hall Art Show and Sale.

You’ll be able to admire them up close and if you fall in love with a particular piece, there is an opportunity to purchase it and take it home with you.

Later in the day there will be a Silent Auction in the Pugwash Open Air Gallery Tent next to the Harbourfront Stage in Eaton Park between 3 and 4pm.

July 29th | 10am until 3pm | Peace Hall, Victoria Street

Art on The Line

This is a wonderful opportunity to get creative and make some art.

Our Art On The Line tent, located at Eaton Park, next to the Harbourfront Stage, will be stocked with all the creative supplies you’ll need to make your very own masterpiece.

Everyone is invited to participate by creating small works of art that can be hung to dry and displayed on clothes lines. Art work can be taken home as a souvenir or left to decorate the park for the day.
