Creemore Festival of the Arts 2017
Artists on Location
Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017
Artists and artisans! Help us bring fall colours right to Creemore’s main street during our annual arts weekend.
The Artists on Location weekend is an opportunity for artists and artisans to display and sell their art in local businesses, studios and galleries throughout the village of Creemore.
Thanks to everyone involved in making our spring fundraiser, Jigs & Reels, a success.
Thanks to your generosity, we raised almost $4,000 to support arts and heritage programming in the community.
A HUGE merci to Marie Stephenson for bringing the Mad Rivière touch to the evening. Thanks also to her crew: Lana Bryant, Karen Crevier, Joan Gordon, Kim Shadlock, Sandy Trott and the kitchen team.
We were thrilled to receive felicitations in honour of our 40th anniversary:
The Collingwood and District Historical Society would like to congratulate the Purple Hills Arts and Heritage Society on their 40th Anniversary.
Celebrating 40 years is a great milestone and one that is achieved through the hard work and dedication of the many volunteers associated with your organization.
Congratulations on your achievement.

Station on the Green, 10 Caroline St E, Creemore, ON
Join us for our Annual General Meeting followed by “Creemore Springs: The Inside Story” with founder John Wiggins.
We’ll take care of business and then grab a glass of beer, a fistful of popcorn and sit back to watch this 40-minute documentary, the true story (which you may know!) of how one man turned a personal and professional setback into a tiny brewing dynasty.
Susanna Moodie: Fact & Fiction
Sunday, April 30 @ 2pm
Station on the Green in Creemore, ON
Guests Cecily Ross and Michael Peterman will join us in a moderated conversation about Susanna Moodie. Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.

Help us develop community-based cultural and historical programs for Creemore.
Results from this survey, together with other information we are gathering, will be presented at Purple Hills Arts & Heritage Society’s Annual General Meeting (Apr 9, 2017), and a synopsis will be posted on the website following the meeting. This survey will remain open for responses.
The Purple Hills Arts & Heritage Society, a registered Ontario charity, has been part of this village’s culture since 1977. Each year, we build on the vision of volunteers before us — people who cared deeply about community and proudly gave their time and energy to cultivate and celebrate arts and heritage activities in Creemore and surrounding area.
