Save the date for the fifth annual arts weekend in Creemore.
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.
The Creemore Heritage Plaques mark historically significant sites around the village and form the basis for the town’s heritage walk.
Walk around the village and you will find markers documenting the history and human stories of the area in words and pictures. By the time you’ve finished, you will know about the Petun Indians, Champlain’s visit in the early 1600s, the coming and the going of the trains, the history of the buildings and the names of people who have shaped today’s Creemore.
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.
Some of our past and current recipients:

When the valley lights up with the richness of autumn, the time is right to spend a weekend exploring rich colours and textures created by local artists and artisans. Enjoy restaurants, cafés and a pub serving all day, and stay overnight in a local inn or bed-and-breakfast.
