What is the Antigonish Art Fair?

The Antigonish Art Fair is a non-profit organization which has three simple goals. First we work to support new artists, of all ages, in our community. Secondly, we aim to build a reputation as being the cultural centre of eastern Nova Scotia. Finally, the Art Fair works to bring more activity to downtown Antigonish.

To achieve these goals, the Antigonish Art Fair presents a set of five events celebrating the artists of Nova Scotia. On these days the park will be full of fantastic performances to view and an array of wonderful art, artisanal goods, and multicultural food to purchase. Admission to the park is free!

These are family events, so there will be something for every member of the family. For the enjoyment of our younger visitors, the Creative Children's Corner will expanded this year, with a focus on multiculturalism as well as art.

The Art Fair events will happen rain or shine. While we always hope for clear skies, If we are forced to relocate, we will post the information on our, Facebook, and radio by 2:00PM on the day.
