Last fall, after the cancellation of August long weekend activities due to COVID-19, local innovators presented a safe alternative for safe gathering. Artists in the Park established its place on the weekend of Bassin' for Bucks. This popular arts event was an uplifting and welcome opportunity for artists and art lovers to enjoy art, conversation, exercise and the natural beauty of Sioux Narrows Provincial Park. After fishermen headed out on the lake to enjoy the passion and challenge of catching the top weight of the day, families headed to the park to converse with local artisans, stroll the trails and purchase original creations that represent our Lake of the Woods community.
In September 2021, the Sioux Narrows Arts Council and the Township of Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls will welcome visitors to the Sioux Narrows Provincial Park for another free family oriented experience. Join us in September to connect with northern Ontario nature, healthy lifestyles and the appreciation for handmade local art.
The Sioux Narrows Arts Council, by volunteer co-operative effort, commits to supporting and promoting area art and artists via an arts festival and art education within our community.
