Purple Hills Arts and Heritage Society is committed to ensuring that our arts community is vibrant and our local history is kept alive.

Our programs include publishing local histories, heritage lectures, art instruction for children and adults, walking tours, scholarships for students and a range of events that bring the c
ommunity together. Our annual Arts Festival is one of the highlights of the area’s fall season.

Community Based and Community Run

We have a volunteer board and rely on membership fees and sponsorships from local business to fund our initiatives. All the money we receive goes towards the programs that make our community a more interesting and engaging place to live. Our Annual General Meeting provides an opportunity for members to stay up to date on the Society’s activities and finances.

A Record of Success

We have helped fund Creemore’s Station on the Green, the historic Log Cabin and the Historical Plaques that can be found throughout Creemore.  Our Artists in the School program provides art instruction to students at the Nottawasaga and Creemore Public School.

In 2003 we were granted charitable status so you receive a tax receipt for your membership fees and sponsorship dollars.

Get Involved

Purple Hills is a great way to meet your neighbours especially if you are new to the area it is great way to introduce yourself.
