Arts in the Garden 2024
Saturday, May 25th & Sunday, May 26th, 2024

Arts in the Garden is an annual outdoor community event based on the North Shore. Taking place on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26, the event is bringing visual artists, musicians, performers, and workshops to ten outdoor spaces across the North Shore. Arts in the Garden is an encounter of people and place, of creativity and of reflection; we invite you to join us in this special weekend of play, connection and delight.

Arts in the Garden celebrates the intersection between artistic practices and the natural world. Each year, musicians, visual artists and performers fill outdoor spaces with their imagination and creativity. Through play, creativity, learning, and engagement, the event invites community to reflect on their relationship to the land and to place, and hopes to inspire us to care for the natural world and for all those sharing the land with us.

Event details, including garden pass sales, will be available on this page by early May. Contact info@northvanarts.ca or 604-988-6844 for details.
