The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition is Canada's largest, longest running juried contemporary outdoor art fair. Founded in 1961, Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition was established to nurture artistic excellence and artists’ entrepreneurial spirit, and to showcase contemporary art to the general public. This free public event showcases works by over 320 contemporary visual artists and makers, ranging in medium from painting, photography, and mixed media to jewellery and ceramics, and attracts 100,000 visitors each year to Nathan Phillips Square.
Join us this holiday at CROWN FLORA STUDIO in Parkdale on December 17 and 18. We are happy to open our doors with local handmade makers and holiday cheer. We are so excited to extend this years show to 2 days to give our friends and clients that extra day of shopping.

The Craft Ontario Craft Show's mission is to support our members by connecting them with new audiences and new opportunities for sales and promotion. Craft Ontario is dedicated to promoting the authentic, unique, and quality work of our members. Craft Ontario members dedicate their lives to preserving Canadian heritage through traditional processes of craft, while pushing boundaries and innovating through contemporary methods of practice. The Craft Ontario Craft Show exists to share craft culture with the public, to expand understanding and interpretation of contemporary craft and encourage the public to purchase craft and understand its value in our community.
Held this year at Artscape Daniels Spectrum in Toronto, the Craft Show will run over 3 days from November 4 to 6, 2016.
The Etsy Jr. Team will be showing at The Baby Show this year. We are in fantastic company, and we will share a blog post sooner to the show date with details and links. My favourite thing about shows is the babies that visit and this show is going to be all babies all the time. Can't wait.
Cabbagetown Art & Crafts, and the annual sale it presents, was founded by Randy Brown in 1988, and he still runs it today. Located in Riverdale Park West, which is in Cabbagetown in the heart of downtown, it is the oldest and prettiest park in Toronto. The sale takes place on the second weekend of September on the same weekend as the Cabbagetown Festival. There is no admission fee and it is readily accessible by TTC.
The Cabbagetown Art & Crafts is a not-for-profit corporation which benefits many local charitable organizations in various ways. The aim of CA&C is to encourage appreciation of the visual arts, to give artists a place to sell their work, and to foster community spirit.
Exhibitors line the walkways of Riverdale Park with their tents and tens of thousands of people stroll the walkways to view the wares. Overarching trees provide shade, there are park benches for family picnics and ample food for sale. All in all, it is a wonderful community event. Come, be part of it.
The third weekend in August is always a special time in Port Dover. The Port Dover Summer Festival, or Art in the Park as it is commonly referred to, has been attracting thousands of visitors on this particular weekend for over 40 years.
A curated weekend shopping event featuring a wide array of offerings from midcentury modern furniture to vintage and contemporary clothing, apothecary, organic foodstuffs, baby apparel, accessories, etc.
Some big draws will be Greenhouse Juice, Dillon's Distillery, Localista food truck, Fitzroy Boutique, Violet Crown Vintage and J&J Made.
The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition is Toronto’s first, largest, and longest running outdoor art fair – providing fresh art, fresh faces, in the fresh air since 1961. Attracting an audience of over 100,000 people annually, and showcasing the work of over 350 artists, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition prides itself on creating an environment which gives artists the chance to interact directly with the public in an informal setting – removing the barriers to access, and dispelling the formality of a traditional gallery or art fair experience.

Jewellery, Pottery, Glass, Hand-Sewn Bags, Fashion Accessories, Preserves, Natural Bath + Body Products, Original Art, Designer Clothing, Kids Clothes and Knits, Home Decor, Luxury Hand-Spun Fibres, Artisan Wood Products, Time Pieces, Leather, Hand-bound Books and more! Plus, there's always yummy Food + Wine. You’re sure to find what you’re looking for (and so much more!) at The Handmade Market.
Blossom and Bloom is a open-concept market showcasing local creative businesses, floral-focused designers, artists and musicians in a single event. A curated public style event that welcomes visitors of all interests and backgrounds to explore the creative work of our local makers.
Our 2016 market celebrates the Mother's Day week with over 35 vendors for each show date. Art installations, live music, craft workshops and creative interventions will take place in our event space. We urge you to come by our market to support local small businesses and meet with the variety of individuals who help drive our creative culture.
