THE QUEEN WEST ART CRAWL
The Queen West Art Crawl (QWAC) is a charitable organization designed to celebrate and promote the art, culture and diversity of Queen West in Toronto. The cornerstone of QWAC is the Outdoor Art Exhibition in beautiful Trinity Bellwoods Park in September, which draws over 60,000 visitors annually. The Art Exhibition features a juried selection of the province’s best artists and artisans, and also showcases a Kids Zone, Performance Zone and Toronto’s best food vendors. With over 15 years of establishing lasting partnerships with galleries, hotels and businesses in the Queen West Community, the Queen West Art Crawl has become a staple event for the community and tourists alike
2019 IN REVIEW
The hub of QWAC was the Outdoor Art Exhibition in Trinity Bellwoods Park (presented by TD Bank), Saturday and Sunday, September 22-23, from 11 am to 6 pm. The art and cultural festival featured 200 of Canada’s most innovative established and emerging artists. Visitors purchased art, took in live music and bought sweet or savoury treats at popular food vendors. Returning by popular demand was a beer garden, sponsored by Steam Whistle. Finally, there were exciting new interactive art activities for both adults and kids, including the popular Tread on It t-shirt printing and Blank Canvases Kids Zone, featuring story time by Fay and Fluffy.
2018 also launched the inaugural “Art After Dark” festival, in 20 plus venues along Queen St. W. The interactive live art and music showcase expanded on 2017's popular "Art Around the World" component, adding night-time programming to West Queen West.
