Art By The River takes place on the grounds of Fort Malden National Historic Site in Amherstburg this Saturday and Sunday.

Walk the shores of the Detroit River and enjoy artists and artisans from across Ontario. Admission will be $5 and children under 12 free with adult admission.

This year’s show will look a bit different to accommodate public health guidelines. This includes reduced capacity, one-way traffic flow of patrons to respect social distance. There will be no food concessions on-site, no live entertainment, or live artists workshops to keep patrons and volunteers safe. Masks will be required and vendor booths are spaced 6 feet apart.

The 54th Annual Art by the River is the main fundraiser for the Gibson Gallery, which is run by a volunteer board of directors. The Gibson Gallery is the former Michigan Central Railway station that has been on Richmond Street since 1896 and houses an art gallery, artisan gift shop, a Michigan Central Caboose, and needlework and artists’ guilds.
