This show is a gem, the quality of the art is outstanding and it's not nearly as overwhelming as most of the other art fairs I've been to. Add in the location in a charming square (the fountain feature is beautiful and very pleasant on a hot day) surrounded by great restaurants, cafés and shopping and you have a clear winner. Lots of free parking and free admission. Highly recommended.

Once of the things I like most about this art show is the location - the outdoor mall has a wide variety of retail and restaurants and a town square that's used for all kinds of events. During the weekend of the Artwalk the place is buzzing with activity from morning until night. It even has an ice rink in the winter! During the Artwalk in mid-August the main square becomes awash with white tents showcasing each artist and pathways through which you can stroll to take in all the different styles of only original art in many mediums, for all tastes and budgets. Also, there's lots of convenient (free) parking at the mall, but you don't really feel like you're in a typical mall; it's quite unique in Ontario where most malls are indoors. The art that's being sold is downtown gallery quality but you get the added bonus of speaking directly to the artists who created the work. No intimidating gallery experience here - I really enjoy the atmosphere of this show!

I happily stumbled upon this show last year and was really impressed with the quality of the original art work being shown and offered for sale! The artists were all really engaging, there was a wide variety and the venue itself was a great spot to spend the afternoon. Im looking forward to visiting again this year and highly recommend anyone interested in the visual arts check it out!

Pleasure to find an outdoor art show in such a great location - and with nearby parking and lots of places to eat. You won't want to miss this one, it's a juried show so the quality is excellent.

This is the greatest way to see great art by hundreds of artists and buy it at half the price of a gallery. You get to talk to the artists who help you understand how and why they create. Some artists will even do customized art works that fit your home decor. Surrounded by great stores and restaurants, you can spend hours there having a wonderful time.
