Artists on Location

Congratulations on your achievement.

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.
