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.

Open to everyone. Free.
Luncheon at 12:30 pm. AGM at 1:30 pm.
Gather with friends old and new for a Sunday luncheon to honour and encourage the volunteers who make our programs happen, and ensure our continued role in the community. Lasagna, Caesar salad, bread, coffee/tea and apple crumble (and a gluten free alternative) will be on the menu.
The Purple Hills Arts & Heritage Society offers occasional funding for arts and heritage projects in Creemore and the surrounding area. We received especially strong applications in 2016.
We also provide annual arts and history bursaries to promising students in arts and history at Stayner Collegiate Institute and Nottawasaga & Creemore Public School.
This longstanding fundraiser keeps getting better.
In 2015, eight gardens in Creemore, Avening, Dunedin and the surrounding hills opened their gates and hearts to help us grow. The Hidden Treasures Garden Tour included six private gardens and two vineyards, all remarkable for their variety of design, plant materials, water and dry features, and many clever ideas.
Grateful thanks is due to the gardeners, who shared their treasures with such generosity of spirit.
