Toronto's Outdoor Art Fair is a picture show on steroids

Updated: Jul 17, 2023

July 2-9, 2023 marks the 62nd anniversary of the fair that brings art to the people in Toronto. The show itself outdates Nathan Phillips Square at City Hall, having begun in the parking lot of the very first Four Seasons Hotel on Jarvis Street. Covid required a virtual show, but this year went physical again with a profusion of tents resembling a medieval pageant.
