Arts on the Avenue Festival
Welcome to our 24th Annual Arts on the Avenue! We are celebrating art, all kinds of art, on August 27th, 2022 with Light Up the Night and August 28th, 2022 with Arts on the Avenue . See what artists will be participating this year by clicking "THE LINE-UP" on the website menu above.
It all takes place on First Avenue Ladysmith. Light Up the Night takes place from 6pm-9:30pm and is designed as a fun family event on a Saturday evening in August. We encourage people to stay up late, bring the family and enjoy downtown Ladysmith, and art. Light Up the Night will include a paint competition, live music, a market and kids area. From 7:30pm-9:30pm there will be a street dance featuring the Del Rio Band.
Early on Sunday morning, artists gather with coffee in one hand and original art in the other, ready for you. This festival is an art collector's dream. Wander the street and see what artists have brought this year. From original paintings, jewelry, fabric art, carving, Indigenous-made art and more, you will not be disappointed. The air is filled with music, the streets are lined with art and there is a kids' art space where young artists create their own one-of-a-kind work to take home! The market on Sunday is from 10am-4pm.
