If you haven’t solidified your Saturday plans yet, we’ve got you!
This Saturday, July 20th, over 190 artists and their respective works will be on display at the 32nd annual TD Art Gallery Paint-In – and it gets even better from there.
This Art Gallery of Greater Victoria community event is their largest fundraiser of the year (bringing over 30,000 people to Moss Street!) and offers something for everyone. Taking place all day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., this unique art festival offers live entertainment, some incredible food vendors and hands-on activities for kids and adults alike – there’s much to enjoy!
On top of this, there will be a family (and dog!) friendly beverage garden on site that will feature beverages from Lighthouse Brewing Company, Mission Hill Winery, Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse and Victoria Soda Works – so come thirsty.
Food vendors include Ali Baba Pizza, Greek on the Street, Victoria Oven, Shatterbox Coffee Bar, Lemon Heaven, Rogers Chocolates and Wannawafel. Also, joining them this year is Uni-corn Treats (gourmet popcorn) and Kattia’s Kitchen!
The Gallery itself will also hold a Public Open House that day, where there’s even more to feast your eyes on. Their doors will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the Saturday. Browse their newest contemporary art shows – it’s admission by donation!
You can also jam away to live music at the Art Gallery from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. with performances by Arlene & Oscar (original Canadiana with a tropical flair), Steph MacPherson (indie-folk), Corduroy (dream pop), Pastel Blank (funky post-punk), and Bridal Party (jangly indie pop).
Lastly, if you feel like supporting the arts, keep an eye out for the donation barrels along Moss Street OR you can text ART to 45678 to donate $5 to the Gallery.
