CALL FOR ENTRY IS NOW CLOSED

Country Heritage Park (CHP) is continuing along it’s a path of building an exciting creative arts, heritage, and community engagement vision and welcomes the return of the very successful, Art-in-the-Park (AITP). The 3rd Annual art show and sale will take place this year on Sunday, August 12th, 2018!

Art-in-the-Park is a one-day outdoor/indoor juried, art show and sale featuring high caliber, original, art work by local and regional artists in the Park’s unique facilities and settings.

Artists will display and sell their work under the shadow of the Niagara Escarpment in Country Heritage Park’s Milton area location. The Park sits at the crossroads of the urban and rural communities of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). One of the fastest growing, most concentrated, and ethnically diverse populations in North America with over 8-million residents (60% of the Ontario population) within a 90-minute drive to the Park.

The Park’s natural setting and unique collection of heritage buildings, artifacts, and displays all collected on a pristine 80-acre site adjacent to Canada’s busiest highway present a unique opportunity to stage and become the go-to location for Art-in-the-Park events and activities.

Art-in-the-Park at Country Heritage Park (art@countryheritagepark.com) is continuing to be an art showcase, arts-education hub, and resource for supporting the exhibition and sale of the artistic works of local and regional artists.

Presented by the CHP, our benefits will come from shared patronage. Art-in-the-Park will advertise in local and GTA, Toronto, and regional media, signage throughout Milton, extensive rack-card distribution, collaborative marketing, social media, Facebook, Twitter, and web-site promotions etc.
