2018 Programs

We have a lot of special programs planned for you. Over the three days of the Fair, discover the fresh talents in our student zone and delve into the accomplished works of our returning seasoned artists. Circle back to the centre of the square and rest your feet at the Partial Lounge and then catch the exuberant Tiffany Pratt, one of Toronto’s most recognizable design figures, as she shares her love of art in Art Before Dishes. Enjoy a custom craft beer at our third annual Henderson Brewing Co.’s Beer Garden while watching the premiere of Calibrate, a contemporary dance piece by Karen Kaeja from Kaeja D’dance.

If that’s not enough, there are art tours, nested exhibitions, adventures in photo darkrooms as well as exciting Power Kids workshops and a special collecting program for our young art lovers to keep you inspired and stimulated. Here is the full schedule:
