Arts on Main began 7 years ago partnering with the Millpond Arts Group to carry out the Youth Arts by the River program as part of the Festival of the Arts. We have since introduced musicians, performers and literary arts, both youth and adult, to an enthusiastic response from our communities.
Over the years the festival has grown to 70 visual artists who have displayed their work in participating store fronts on the Main Streets of Alliston, Cookstown, Beeton and Tottenham for a period of four weeks. In summation,an exhibition called Showcase of South Simcoe was held to showcase the winners of Arts on Main and in the past few years included Youth Arts by the River.
It is our objective to promote local artists/artisans and aspects of local historical heritage in South Simcoe in the towns of Alliston, Beeton,Cookstown and Tottenham, which are the focal points for Arts on Main.
This year at the Beeton Honey & Garden Festival, visit our Artisan Marketplace, where our local artisans will be offering the fruits of their artistic labours for sale!
