Every summer, generations of creative people have gathered to demonstrate, exhibit, share and market their unique artistic talents and original works in Sioux Narrows. The Sioux Narrows Arts Council is planning forward to July 30th and 31st, the 2022 Arts Festival weekend. A popular and longstanding tradition on the shores of Lake of the Woods, each year this festival attracts thousands of visitors and offers the familiar alongside trending and exclusive art experiences.
We will be ready to welcome artists, musicians, volunteers and visitors to our summer celebrations. Working together with the Township of Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls and the Northwestern Health Unit, the Sioux Narrows Arts Council will continue to strive to deliver safe family-oriented arts events for all to enjoy.
Last summer we celebrated the history of the Sioux Narrows Arts Council, its artists and its community volunteers. Recognition of these accomplishments will continue to be brought to light this year as Sioux Narrows proudly hosts the longest running arts festival of its kind in Northwestern Ontario. Thank you for your continued support through the challenges the pandemic has presented. We look forward to seeing you beyond the bridge in 2022.

Our 2020 August Arts Festival weekend, a longstanding tradition on the shores of Lake of the Woods, was paused as we worked together to protect the health and wellbeing of our community and of our entire planet. Our safe alternative, Artists in the Park, took place on September 12th. The day was an uplifting and welcome opportunity for artists and art lovers to enjoy art, conversation, exercise and the natural beauty of the Sioux Narrows Provincial Park. In 2021 we will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Sioux Narrows Arts Council. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and at siouxnarrowsartsfestival.com to learn about upcoming special events.
