Something for everyone!

Welcome to the 56th edition of Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, Canada’s largest and longest running outdoor art exhibition.

There is a lot of NEW happening this year! In addition to our wonderful returning artists with hundreds of new artworks, there will also be many new artists, and members of artist-run galleries taking over Nathan Phillips Square! We are also very excited about the return of our Student Zone featuring students from OCAD U, Sheridan College and UTSC!

There is something for everyone this weekend, from a contemporary dance performance, art tours and #BeerChats, a garden installation, a curated Craft & Design exhibition, to art workshops for our young visitors.

Take a journey into our newly designed grounds and wander around in the surrounding mews, immerse yourself in the joy of discovering new ideas and fresh talents. Enjoy new and exclusive craft beer by our friends at Henderson Brewing and take it all in as you relax in our unique Cascading Beer Garden.

In return, we ask you to do us a favour and not leave the square without an original piece of art in your hands! After all, that’s why we are all here!

Enjoy!
