It’s a wrap!
The volunteer committee for the 5th annual Creemore Festival of the Arts wishes to thank everyone who supported and enjoyed the exhibits and shows around town last weekend. We hope the work you saw and the people you met made you feel connected to the community and inspired by the creativity that surrounds us.
We couldn’t do it without you – our members, sponsors, volunteers and, of course, the artists and their weekend hosts.
CELEBRATING THE PETUN
(A Tea & History Event)
Our own Pat Raible has published a new book, The Petun: People of the Hills, the result of her deep interest in the people who lived here 400 years ago. You can pick it up at Curiosity House. Join us to celebrate her achievement. Helen Blackburn will share some Petun artifacts from her collection.

Artists on Location 2016
This is an annual event where artists and artisans are embedded in local businesses, studios, galleries, restaurants, homes and green spaces in the vicinity of Creemore’s Mill Street.
The event is anchored by a group exhibit in Creemore’s “small hall”, the Station on the Green, showing one piece from each participating artist and featuring a large map (and volunteers) to help you find artists around town, all within walking distance.
We offer funding by application to community groups and individuals in Creemore and the surrounding area for projects in harmony with our mandate.
Watch for the annual call for applicants … the deadline is the end of January.
