Kawartha Arts Festival 2021

Calling all artists!

We are currently asking artists that have been part of the KAF in the past to fill out a questionnaire to gauge the mood and expectation for this year’s potential show for Labour Day.  If you haven’t already, please fill out this survey here.

We are already receiving inquiries from our artists – everyone wants to know if KAF 2021 is a go. Well, at this point nobody knows for sure what the next few months will bring in terms of COVID-19 restrictions, but we will be sure to keep everyone informed as we move along.

As soon as we know what is happening and what we are allowed to do, we will announce it here and on Facebook.

In the meantime, please stay safe, and be well.


September 4-5, 2021


Applications are now available.

Did you know?

The Kawartha Arts Festival was first held in 1989 and started off as a small collection of artists gathering together to give something back to the local arts community. It has since grown into one of the largest art festivals in Southern Ontario and attracts thousands of visitors each year.

The Kawartha Art Festival is a non-profit organization run by dedicated volunteers. It is kept going by the generous donations given each year by the show’s patrons, and we would like to thank each and every one of you to keep the Art Festival growing more unique each year.
