 In Events

The Creemore Festival of the Arts, taking place from Oct. 4-6, promises an array of events and attractions for all ages. Attendees will have the opportunity to indulge in marquee shows The Iceberg Project by acclaimed artist Sue A Miller and I Will Not Waste Away by Jennifer Johne at the Station on the Green. Additionally, throughout the village of Creemore the works of 50 talented artists from both the Creemore area and beyond will be displaying work in local businesses and on private porches, providing rich diversity of artistic expression.

A special exhibit of the works of Peter Adams will take place at Lagom Gallery. This exhibit will be the first showing of work inspired by his remarkable journey around the Svalbard Archipelago aboard a traditionally rigged Barquentine sailing vessel.

A highlight of this year’s festival is the introduction of the Makers’ Market on Sunday, featuring a curated selection of artisans offering beautifully crafted products. From handcrafted jewelry to artisanal goods, attendees can explore and purchase unique pieces directly from the talented creators.

Music enthusiasts are in for a treat with performances by renowned artists. On Friday night, St. John’s Church will host the multi-talented Tom Wilson, whose repertoire spans singing, songwriting, spoken word, and visual art, promising an unforgettable evening of creativity and entertainment. On Saturday evening at St. John’s Church Aysanabee, a multi-instrumentalist, producer and 2024 Juno award winner will perform. Additionally, Gurdeep Pandhur, a master of Bhangra dance as a means to spread joy, will lead a class for those interested in learning about this joyful art form, followed by a free community performance at the Village Green.

The Conscientious Effort of Jim Harkness, a local artist, will be showcased and celebrated for his contributions to Purple Hills Arts and Heritage Society at Creemore Log Cabin.

Interactive activities for all ages will feature Letters of the Heart, celebrating the art of letter writing on the East Lawn at Station on the Green.

The festival will also showcase the talents of the Creemore Community Children’s Choir, who will delight audiences with a free outdoor concert on Sunday afternoon at Creemore Village Green, adding a touch of youthful exuberance to the weekend’s festivities.
