About Art in the Park

Saturday, July 14, 2018

9:00 am – 5:00 pm

In commemoration of over 20 years of successful involvement in community arts, we are pleased to be able to present the 7th annual Renfrew Art Guild Art in the Park!

First launched in 2012, this year Art in the Park is a one-day free family-oriented gathering promoting arts, culture, recreation and tourism, and exhibits Renfrew Art Guild member artists and independent artisans from the greater Ottawa Valley area.

Artists display and sell high calibre works in a small tent city and attracts visitors from across the Ottawa Valley, Perth, Deep River, and beyond.
