Toronto Outdoor Art Fair is Canada’s leading and longest-running juried outdoor art fair, with a mandate to bring together artists and the public face-to-face in a radically welcoming and accessible environment to nurture the joy of engaging with art. Founded in 1961, Toronto Outdoor Art Fair was established to put contemporary visual artists and makers front and centre of their works, and to nurture artistic excellence and artists’ entrepreneurial spirit. This public event showcases works by over 360 contemporary visual artists and makers and attracts 130,000 visitors each year to Nathan Phillips Square. The Toronto Outdoor Art Fair is a charitable nonprofit organization.

Thoughts About Art and Community

The Toronto Outdoor Art Fair (TOAF) works to advance the knowledge and appreciation of art through outdoor public exhibitions. TOAF 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.


Juried art show with affordable art pieces. We offer performance art for entertainment, music, food trucks for the weekend of the event.
