Riverdale ArtWalk is a two-day, public fine art exhibition showcasing established and emerging artists in Jimmie Simpson Park in Toronto’s flourishing Queen East arts district. The first outdoor art show of Toronto’s season, participating artists are selected through an anonymous jury process, allowing for an opportunity to participate in the only outdoor art show that focuses SOLELY on fine art. It has consistently been rated by local artists as one of the best organized show in Toronto, drawing over 25,000 people to the park that weekend.
Last year, the festival hosted over 170 participating artists and the inclusion of local community groups, entertainment and food vendors. Artist Awards in Photography, Painting, Mixed Media, and Other Media have been created through exciting new sponsorships with local organizations and businesses. Now in its 21st year in the Riverdale / Leslieville area of Toronto, the festival has grown to reach an audience of over 25,000 art enthusiasts and supporters. Through new partnership opportunities with the local BIA, the Riverdale ArtWalk expects to continue to grow.
With our intensive orientation session 2 months before the show and strong artists support, 96% of RAW artists indicated overall communications “Best Ever” or “Better than Average’, you don’t want to miss this show!
