The New Art Festival
The New Art Festival is Ottawa’s largest non-commercial outdoor art festival. Featuring over 250 artists and entertainers from a full spectrum of disciplines, this annual event now draws thousands of visitors and participants from across Canada and around the world.
The New Art Festival is a non-commercial event, therefore we do not include any mass-produced goods, nor do we have any representation from large chains or corporations. We strive to be a low carbon footprint event and feature organic food providers from the community. All of the artwork, food and music at TNAF are the direct result of the artists and artisans who are featured at our festival.
