The City of Richmond Hill’s Cultural Services Team is excited to share two opportunities for artists to participate in the City’s 2024 Canada Day celebrations!

Richmond Hill’s Festivals and Events are a great way to showcase your offerings and connect to the community.

Artists are invited to apply to be Art Vendors or Art Facilitators on Monday, July 1st, 2024 at Richmond Green Park.

Artists are asked to be present from the time of approximately 2pm-8pm, after which they are welcomed to join the celebrations in the park which will last until 11pm. Set-up can begin as early as 12pm (noon).

Arts Vendors: Individual or organizations that occupy a booth with the sole intention of displaying and selling works of art/craft that have been personally handmade or designed by the artist or organization.
Fee of $107.20 (including HST and service fees) is due upon acceptance of application.
