Art in the Park
Art in the Park is one of the largest outdoor arts and crafts shows in Ontario showcasing a multitude of artists and artisans who sell their original art and creative handiwork. It also features a family entertainment zone with live music and delicious food options. It has been named one of the Top 100 Festivals and Events in Ontario.
The event was first organized in 1970 by the Windsor Art Gallery. This first event gathered notable guests from all over Ontario. Since then, it has become an annual tradition that attracts artists from Ontario, Quebec, and Michigan. In 1978, the event passed to the hands of the Rotary Club of Windsor. Over the last 30 years, Art in the Park has contributed over 1 million dollars toward the Willistead Manor restoration.
