We welcome artists from far and wide to our 4 day art competition. This painting festival showcases the cultural heritage and charm of the village of Elora and town of Fergus and beautiful natural settings of the river gorges and rural vistas of Grand River country.
During the competition, come rain or shine, artists from the U.S. and Canada will be painting around the communities to capture the charming heritage buildings, historic neighbourhoods, breathtaking river and gorge vistas, rolling hillsides and picturesque farms of our uniquely beautiful region.
The competition will culminate in a show and sale of paintings. This is an open show of paintings produced during the festival with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards of $1000, $500 and $300 respectively. There is also a $200 People’s choice award.
