Click here to watch a film documenting the artists, the art and the celebrations of Kingston’s 2017 Street Art Festival. Many thanks to all those who allowed me to film them and their work. My deepest apologies to those I was unable to include in this short film. Congratulations on a great event.

Kingston’s Renowned Street & Participatory Art Festival is Back
August 21st -26th
Doug Fluhrer Park, 2 North Street, Kingston

In 2014 the “On The Wall” street art festival won the Kingstonist award for being the most
exciting new arts event of the year in Kingston! With such a tremendous community response we are thrilled to be bringing it back for 2017 bigger and better than ever. With all this buzz it’s no wonder we have already been voted as one of the TOP 5 things to do in Kingston during the month of August, with  local dignitaries slated to attend.

Grand Celebration Finale on Saturday, August 26 11:00am – 4:00pm

Over 25 artists have registered to showcase their skills alongside local community groups and businesses offering family-friendly services such as:

  • Trailhead – Try out kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding on the river
  • Parcours – Try out their lively stunt-acrobatics
  • Kingston School of Dance -Learn interpretive dance
  • Kingston Pipe Band – Give bag-piping a try
  • Blue Canoe and Storefront Fringe – Improv
  • Yessi – Drumming and Zumba
  • Kingston Broadsword Academy – Discover your medieval self
  • Great food – Juicy Kiks, Mio Gelato, Glocca Morra, You Found Us
