2021 Arts Festival Vendor Info

Welcome to our inaugural event!

Last summer, we had hoped to host an “indoor-outdoor festival” as our inaugural event. However, because of COVID, we had to downsize the Festival and move indoors. But we are not letting it stop us! Our committee has booked the most prestigious event centre in the City of Richmond Hill, that is the Richmond Hill Performing Arts Centre!

The Richmond Hill Arts Council has not been standing still either! During the last few weeks and throughout the month of October, we have hosted FREE art classes to those ages 55 and up thanks to the Horizon Grant. Participants have already expressed their interest in attending more art classes in the New Year. Their work will be on display at the Arts Festival.

If you are a registered vendor for the upcoming Arts Festival on Nov 20th, please see below for some important info!
