The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition is Toronto’s first, largest, and longest running outdoor art fair – providing fresh art, fresh faces, in the fresh air since 1961. Attracting an audience of over 100,000 people annually, and showcasing the work of over 350 artists, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition prides itself on creating an environment which gives artists the chance to interact directly with the public in an informal setting – removing the barriers to access, and dispelling the formality of a traditional gallery or art fair experience.

Thoughts About Art and Community

The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition offers an accessible gateway to the arts by providing opportunities for direct artist engagement and direct sales in an outdoor gallery that’s open to everyone. We provide a showcase for emerging and established artists to gain exposure, interact with and sell original artwork to engage collectors, and create an inclusive platform for advancement, support and respect for artists and the arts. We provide a dynamic forum for cultural enrichment and artistic innovation, facilitating the promotion of high quality art, artists, and new art forms.


We are Toronto's first, largest, and longest running outdoor art fair, a staple of Toronto’s arts scene, a treasure hunt for collectors, and a fun, exhilarating and proud celebration of the arts, the artists and their talent.
