THE 19TH ANNUAL RIVERDALE ARTWALK SHOWCASES LOCAL ARTISTS IN JIMMIE SIMPSON PARK
Riverside’s Annual Eats & Beats Streetfest is back – this year on Saturday, June 3rd and Sunday, June 4th alongside the Riverdale ArtWalk. Join us as the festival helps ‘Celebrate 150’ and Indigenous roots, with festivities spanning Riverside’s 10 vibrant blocks along Queen Street East from the DVP to Empire Avenue.
While you’re at the Riverside Eats & Beats Streetfest on June 3rd and 4th, head over to the easterly end of the neighbourhood to Jimmie Simpson Park for the 19th Annual Riverside ArtWalk. Hosted by the Artists’ Network, the Riverdale ArtWalk is bigger and better than it has ever been before, with over 150 established and emerging artists exhibiting painting, photography, mixed media, printmaking, drawing, and sculpture.
The event is free and open to the public so you can experience art all in one area over the weekend. Enjoy this chance to discuss art with local artists and find that perfect piece or two to take home and make your own.
