This year, Art in the Open takes place August 26, 2023 from 4pm to midnight – Stay tuned!

Free to the public and family-friendly, this unique and annual event transforms the historic downtown into an open-air art gallery that celebrates the heritage and green spaces of the city with ephemeral works of visual art, including installations, screenings, projections, performance art, dance and more.

You’re encouraged to explore the spaces, ask questions and engage with the diverse, the unusual and the stunning. This year, focal points are at Victoria Park, The Confederation Centre of The Arts, Victoria Row, Rockford Square, and Connaught Square.
