CALL FOR ENTRY IS NOW OPEN!

This unique art show & sale supports both emerging and mid-career artists with the opportunity to exhibit and sell their work at a minimal entry fee, with no commission taken, and in a spectacular setting on the splendour of the 80 acre grounds or inside our heritage buildings at Country Heritage Park in Milton. Truly a one-of-a-kind venue.

Art-in-the-Park is a one-day outdoor/indoor juried, art show and sale featuring high caliber, original, art work by local and regional artists in the Park’s unique facilities and settings. Check out past year’s participants!

Artists will display and sell their work under the shadow of the Niagara Escarpment in Country Heritage Park’s Milton area location. The Park sits at the crossroads of the urban and rural communities of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). One of the fastest growing, most concentrated, and ethnically diverse populations in North America with over 8-million residents (60% of the Ontario population) within a 90-minute drive to the Park.

Presented by the CHP, our benefits will come from shared patronage. Art-in-the-Park will advertise in local and GTA, Toronto, and regional media, signage throughout Milton, extensive rack-card distribution, collaborative marketing, social media, Facebook, Twitter, and web-site promotions etc.
