Wild for the Arts Festival
September 17 & 18, 2016
Wild for the Arts is a community based cultural event that celebrates nature as a source of inspiration for creativity. We offer a full schedule of events and activities amid the autumn beauty of MacGregor Point Provincial Park. Featured are nature-inspired visual art and written works.
We are happy to announce that due to popular demand Wild for the Arts has been re-established for September 2016!!
The venue has changed from past years to better accommodate you, the artists, and our many festival attendees. The new location of the Campground Studio Tour will be Nipissing – Fox Way. To help orientate yourselves with the new campsites, their sizes and campground amenities a map of the area has been added to the webpage.
Not only will this new location have all electrical sites (newly completed in spring 2015) but this campground provides access to 2 Comfort Stations (flush toilets and showers), an additional Vault Toilet and two large open grass areas for additional festival features. During the time of the festival this campground will be open only to Wild for the Arts Studio Tour participants. The general campers will be located in Algonquin or Huron Campgrounds.
If you are interested in coming into the park to view the sites please arrange in advance by contacting Matthew Cunliffe by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Please pass this information on to any interested artists, artisans and authors that you know. There are 35 sites and locations will be on a first come basis so register early!
Artists and authors interested in leading workshops for the 2016 festival should email email@example.com
