Here’s how you can become a part of Victoria’s biggest art festival next month


Welcome back after a two year hiatus! The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is looking for your help to make Victoria’s favourite art event even bigger and better than ever!

We’re talking about the much-anticipated TD Art Gallery Paint-In, of course, which will return for its 33rd year next month.

One of Victoria’s most beloved festivals, it all goes down on Saturday, July 16th, drawing over 30,000 visitors!

For one day only, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., artists will line up along Moss Street—from Fort Street all the way to Dallas Road—to demonstrate their craft and share their work with the community.

Celebrate up to 150 local artists and enjoy community, arts-based groups transforming Moss Street into a colourful art gallery.

Under the sun, you’ll be able to explore your love of art with friends and neighbours, connect with local artists as they demonstrate their craft, and stop at the Imagination Stations for art-inspired activities.

You’ll even have the chance to taste local eats and drinks at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria grounds at 1040 Moss Street.

There’s also local music and performances PLUS a family-friendly beer garden, open until 6 p.m.

This year, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is looking for 200 volunteers to help host the festival—there are a variety of roles and shifts available throughout the day to accommodate everyone.

This is your chance to help support the AGGV, Vancouver Island art and artists, and celebrate art with the community by volunteering for the festival!

You can apply to be a volunteer for the Paint-In event online, and must be willing to commit to 4-hours on the day of the festival and one 1-hour training/orientation session in early July.

Volunteer roles include Team Leader, Event Assistant, Donation and Fundraising Assistant, Family Friendly Beer Garden Assistant, Set-Up Assistant and Take Down Assistant.

Snacks will be provided for your hard work, and you’ll also receive a free t-shirt!
