We are excited to announce our Call for Submissions for the upcoming Cabbagetown Art and Craft Show 2024, our 35th annual celebration of creativity and talent in the heart of our vibrant community. We’re a community-based, volunteer-led, not-for-profit corporation, whose commitment is to support art and craft creators, to encourage appreciation of the visual arts and to give artists an affordable and accessible 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 the Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre and BGC Toronto Kiwanis (formerly known as the Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club).

Founded in 1988, the annual Cabbagetown Art & Craft Show is a much-loved event in our historic neighbourhood. The show attracts visitors from all over the province on the weekend after Labour Day to Riverdale Park West. Located in the heart of Cabbagetown, the Cabbagetown Art & Craft Show has been a favourite of artists and visitors for over three decades.

Our exhibitors are selected by an anonymous jurying process that ensures that the show consistently hosts the highest quality, most innovative, skilled and creative exhibits each year. Artists tell us it is their favourite show, visitors tell us they love the variety, the laid-back atmosphere and the high quality and diversity of the exhibitions.

It’s an outdoor gallery where discerning art and craft lovers can experience juried exhibitions, talk to artists, designers and artisans and buy one-of-a-kind pieces from some of Ontario’s most creative talent.

Exhibitor tents line the park’s walkways, welcoming thousands of visitors over two-and-a-half days. Overarching trees provide shade, there’s a delicious selection of food for sale and there are picnic tables for family gatherings. We can’t wait to welcome you to our community. We invite artists to join us in making the 2024 event a memorable experience for both artists and visitors.

We welcome artists working in a variety of media, including but not limited to:

  • Visual arts (painting, drawing, photography, sculpture)
  • Jewellery
  • Textiles
  • Ceramics
  • Glass art
  • Mixed Media
  • Wood
