34th Annual Cabbagetown Art & Craft Show
Featuring 165 Juried Artists
September 8 – 10, 2023 | Free Admission
Friday, 1pm – 6pm | Saturday, 10am – 6pm | Sunday, 10am – 5pm
Riverdale Park West, Toronto
Over the weekend after Labour Day, the much-loved Cabbagetown Art & Craft Show will return to Riverdale Park West. As artists and art lovers gather in the unique heritage neighbourhood, it promises to be the perfect way to mark the winding down of summer. The free event takes place against a backdrop of beautiful Victorian homes over the same weekend as the Cabbagetown Festival on Parliament Street and the Fall Festival at Riverdale Farm.
The Cabbagetown Art & Craft Show brings together 165 juried artists who have been carefully selected for their skill, creativity and originality. From painting to ceramics, photography to jewellery, woodworking to sculpture and much more, there’s something for everyone to discover and appreciate.
Tucked in the heart of Cabbagetown at Carlton and Sumach, the park will be dotted with artists’ tents for two-and-a-half days in September. Visitors who wander the pathways can meet the makers, connect with the artists and gain insight into the creative process. It’s a unique opportunity to support sustainable, handmade, local craftsmanship by finding that special, one-of-a-kind piece. And it’s never too early to get a head start on holiday shopping!
The location is so inviting that visitors often linger to picnic in the park, generously shaded by trees. There’ll be delicious treats at the food stands, and the chance to soak up the sweet sounds of live music. Riverdale Park West sits opposite the historic Necropolis cemetery and chapel, next to Riverdale Farm – both neighbourhood gems and well worth a peek.
About The Cabbagetown Art & Craft Show
We believe that art inspires the soul. We’re a community-based, not-for-profit corporation, presenting the annual Art & Craft Show in the beautiful neighbourhood of Cabbagetown.
Our commitment is to support art and craft creators, to encourage appreciation of the visual arts and to give artists a place to showcase and sell their work.
By promoting Canadian artists, this not-for-profit juried show generates funding that allows us to give back to our community, helping support BGC Toronto Kiwanis (formerly known as the Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club).
We acknowledge that the area we refer to as Cabbagetown today lies on the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. We also acknowledge that this land is covered by treaty No.13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. We are grateful to gather each year in Riverdale Park West for the Cabbagetown Art & Craft Show.
The show is held in Riverdale Park West, which is accessible. The show is also stroller friendly. The Simpson House washrooms at Riverdale Farm (open 9am to 5pm) are wheelchair accessible from the north entrance. Baby change tables are available in the farm’s Meeting House washrooms.
