It’s back, and it’s happening THIS weekend!

After a two-year hiatus, the TD Art Gallery Painting will return, and it promises to be bigger and better than ever!

Join Victoria’s favorite art festival for its 33rd edition taking place this Saturday, July 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., where artists will line up along Moss Street to demonstrate their art and share their work with the community.

Celebrate up to 150 local artists and enjoy arts-focused community groups transforming Moss Street into a colorful art gallery.

Under the Sun, you can explore your love of art with friends and neighbors, connect with local artists as they demonstrate their art, and stop at Imagination Stations for activities inspired by the art.

You’ll even have the chance to sample local food and drink at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria at 1040 Moss Street.

There’s also local music and shows PLUS a family-friendly beer garden, open until 6 p.m.
