Bringing art and the arts alive in Victoria Park

Dictionary.com suggests an artist is one who produces works in any of the fine arts, like a painter, a photographer or a sculptor, exhibiting a particular, refined skill.

PhotoIt is our mandate, with Art in the Park, Petrolia, that we feature pieces that have been handmade, are one of a kind originals, utilizing the artist's imagination, talent and expertise.

You will thoroughly enjoy this feast for the eyes; a showcase of patience, determination and hometown roots.

We also provide an opportunity for local performers to serenade the crowds with a delightful variety of music and instruments in the open air band stand.

Our small, dynamic committee works hard putting together this exciting attraction held annually in Victoria Park. We are proudly building a reputation; for looking after our vendors and community partners, for offering our visitors high quality and diversity, and having lots of fun.
Please let us know if you would like to be a part of this committee. We are willing to accept a few more hands; either on the day of the event, or on the committee. We meet once a month from January to August at 8:30 am.
