Art in the Park
June 1 and 2, 2019
Art in the Park is held the first full weekend in June of each year - Rain or Shine! - and is the signature event that launches Windsor's festival season. As one of Ontario's largest outdoor arts and crafts shows with exhibitors from all over Ontario and Quebec, Art in the Park is a popular event in Windsor/Essex County. The 270+ artists and artisans display and retail their wares in booths set up around the 15.5 acres of gated grounds surrounding the beautiful and historic Willistead Manor in Olde Walkerville (Windsor), Ontario.
While visiting, take a moment to step back in time as you explore Willistead Manor and marvel in its original beauty, decor and craftsmanship. Speak with one of the Friends of Willistead and enjoy stories from the Manor's past. Most importantly, though - have fun finding new treasures and experiencing the amazing craftsmanship of our exhibitors. Proceeds from this event are shared by the Willistead Restoration Fund and the charities supported by the Windsor Rotary Club (1918). Over the past 40 years, Art in the Park has raised over $1.3 million dollars for the restoration of Willistead Manor and its grounds and an additional estimated $2.1 million to support local community organizations including John McGivney Children's Centre, Maryvale and others.
