Our donors and supporters are at the heart of what we do.
Dear Friends of TOAF,
The 57th edition of Toronto Outdoor Art Fair was dubbed ‘the best show in 20 years’ by our artists, visitors and supporters in our community. This show garnered the attention of media and the community alike with our highest audience reach to-date.
This success was the culmination of a three-year commitment to reinvigorate the legacy of Toronto Outdoor Art Fair. Since 2016, we have taken major steps to rebuild and strengthen our organizational infrastructure and revitalize our mission and values. We have implemented exciting new programs and services for our artists and visitors. We amplified our presence through robust and exciting community partnerships, and we have galvanized a great deal of support from you!
We take immense pride in our mission to bring artists and the public together in a radically welcoming manner. TOAF is a space where people can experience art directly from the artists without barriers.
We are also proud to foster a platform where “making a living” off art is possible for independent artists. Every year, our visitors collectively spend over $2 million on art at the Fair - in other words, they are investing in the artists and the creative economy of our city. To bring art to people’s everyday life in the most accessible way possible - is what drives our work each day.
This Fair is renowned for hosting nationally and internationally acclaimed Canadian artists under our iconic white tents in the early years of their careers. That’s our true legacy! We can confidently say that, together with you, we have launched the careers of thousands of promising artists over the last 58 years.
Help us build on this legacy. We are ready to step into the next chapter of this wonderful organization with your continued support and care.
Executive & Creative Director
