About the Queen West Art Crawl

The Queen West Art Crawl (QWAC) is a charitable organization designed to celebrate and promote the art, culture and diversity of Queen West in Toronto. The cornerstone of QWAC is the Outdoor Art Exhibition in beautiful Trinity Bellwoods Park, which draws over 60,000 visitors annually. The Art Exhibition features a juried selection of the province’s best artists and artisans, and also showcases a Kids Zone, Performance Zone and Toronto’s best food vendors. With 15 years of establishing lasting partnerships with galleries, hotels and businesses in the Queen West Community, the Queen West Art Crawl has become a staple event for the community and tourists alike.


2016 in Review!

The hub of QWAC was the Outdoor Art Exhibition in Trinity Bellwoods Park (presented by TD Bank), Saturday and Sunday, October 1-2, from 11 am to 6 pm. The art and cultural festival featured 200 of Canada’s most innovative established and emerging artists. Visitors purchased art, took in live music and bought sweet or savoury treats at popular food vendors. Returning by popular demand was a beer garden, sponsored by Steam Whistle. QWAC also partnered with OCAD university to showcase its top graduates in an innovative installation. Finally, there were exciting new interactive art activities for both adults and kids, including the popular Tread on It t-shirt printing, Blank Canvases Kids Zone, and interactive dance led by Ecstactic Dance Toronto.
