DOZENS OF ARTISTS
HUNDREDS OF YOUR NEIGHBOURS
ONE VENUE

The Danforth East Arts Fair is an exciting free event that will take place on the weekend of September 17-18, 2022. Held in beautiful East Lynn Park (located on the south side of Danforth, between Coxwell and Woodbine), the fair showcases the work of an eclectic mix of local artists in a beautiful outdoor setting.

The event runs from 10am-6pm on Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday, rain or shine! Lunch and snack options are available from local restaurants (details coming soon) in the park to satisfy your appetite. Want to bring the kids? No problem. Free children’s activities and crafts will be happening on-site all day. For the adults, you’ll have a soundtrack of live acoustic music serenading you as you go from booth to booth.

There’s something for everyone at the Danforth East Arts Fair. Arts and crafts range in price anywhere from $5 to more than $1,500 from more than 50 artisans. And be sure to enter our contests to win big at the fair!

See you there!
