Interested artists are invited to review the application guidelines and to contact Guelph Arts Council with inquiries at programs@guelpharts.ca or 519-836-3280.

Art on the Street is co-presented by Downtown Guelph Business Association and Guelph Arts Council and features contemporary fine art and craft.

The event has grown both in scale and calibre of artist since its inception in 2003 to become Guelph's largest outdoor exhibition and sale. Art on the Street spotlights multi-disciplinary talent within the regional arts community and offers a fresh-air art experience for Guelph’s residents and visitors.

Each year, over 80 established and emerging artists showcase their works in temporary, open-air studios. Art on the Street is an opportunity to meet painters, potters, blacksmiths, jewellers, glass blowers, woodcarvers, textile artists, photographers, and more, and to take home a piece of Guelph's creative culture. Art on the Street is a free event that welcomes art lovers of all ages.
