The Big Draw

September 28 and 29, 10 am to 5 pm

Fort York has always attracted artists – amateurs and professionals alike. Even before 1800, artists such as Elizabeth Simcoe made sketches and paintings of the town and the garrison, chronicling the history of the neighbourhood and the waterfront. The fort remained a popular subject for artists throughout the 20th century. This weekend Fort York invites artists of all ages and abilities to continue the long-standing tradition of sketching and painting at this National Historic Site. It’s part an international festival of art; learn more here.

FREE admission all weekend
