About the Pelham Art Festival
The Pelham Art Festival now in its 35th year, is recognized as one of the premiere arts festivals in Ontario, hosting nationally and internationally acclaimed Canadian artists. Our In-person festival held on Mother’s Day Weekend in the Pelham Meridian Community Centre draws thousands of visitors from across Southern Ontario. We held our first successful Online Festival this year courtesy of COVID and are looking forward to our Pelham Holiday Artfest Online show and sale.

The festival is a fund-raising event, and artists donate back 15% of their sales. We are a proud community sponsor of Pelham Public libraries and the arts. Festival proceeds benefit the Pelham libraries and provide annual scholarships to graduating Pelham students pursuing post-secondary studies in fine arts from E.L. Crossley Secondary School, Notre Dame College School and to Pelham students enrolled in the Art and Design Program at Niagara College. The festival also supports various community arts projects.
