Art in the Park has been cancelled for this year.

“The health and safety of all our stakeholders is our paramount concern,” states Joel Rocheleau, Chair of the Art in the Park Committee. “For this reason, it is with regret that The Rotary Club of Windsor Foundation Fund Board of Directors has decided to cancel Art in the Park for 2020.”

However, in an effort to keep the spirit of Art in the Park alive and to offer support to our talented artists and artisans, the websites and contact information for the exhibitors who would have been represented this year, will be available at www.artintheparkwindsor.com.

“Though this is absolutely the right thing to do, we are saddened to learn about the cancellation of Art in the Park,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “When we celebrate the Rotary Club of Windsor’s (1918) beloved annual event, we celebrate the spirit of creativity and innovation, engagement and giving that are present in Windsor’s DNA.”

The signature event, one of Ontario’s largest, draws thousands year after year and has allowed Rotary to raise and donate over $1.3 million for the restoration of Willistead Manor, and around $2.1 million more to support local community organizations.
