The ROSEDALE MAINSTREET BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT AREA is accepting applications for its annual:
ROSEDALE ART FAIR
SATURDAY JUNE 8, 2024 and SUNDAY JUNE 9, 2024
The ROSEDALE MAINSTREET BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT AREA represents over 180 businesses along Yonge Street from Woodlawn Avenue to Crescent Road. The purpose of the ROSEDALE ART FAIR is to draw people into our neighborhood to shop, dine, experience our events and enjoy all we have to offer!
The ROSEDALE ART FAIR is a wonderful opportunity for over 90 artists to show and sell their work in one of Toronto’s most upscale and prestigious neighborhoods alongside fellow established and emerging Canadian artists. RAF has become a destination for art connoisseurs and art lovers, gallerists and designers alike, as well as novice buyers who are seeking to find the perfect piece for their home. Many artists call RAF their favorite outdoor show with several claiming record sales. Our location in RAMSDEN PARK is just off of bustling Yonge Street and is highly visible by the many people who frequent this major thoroughfare.
The ROSEDALE ART FAIR is an outdoor fair consisting of individual 10’ x 10’ tents provided by us. Booth fees cover the cost of the tent rental and RAF will provide all the setup of the booths. Artists may use their own freestanding 10’ grids in which to hang their artwork. RAF will recommend a grid rental company if needed, and that information will be provided to artists with their acceptance email.
*Artwork may be left overnight as we do have security patrolling the grounds, however, RAF is not responsible for loss or damage to artwork.
