Artisans Village

artisans village

Got a flair for fashion? So does the Jazz Man, and he's ready to hit up the Artisans Village at the Festival this year. So come jazz up your summer wardrobe with him this summer and check out the Artisan's Village at Nathan Phillips Square, June 19-27, 2015. Open from 12pm to 8:30 pm, this one-of-a-kind fair features an eclectic selection of hand-made jewelry, scarves, décor and more.

There is still plenty of space remaining for this year's show! Want to participate? For more information, contact our Coordinator Max Williams (maxstanleywilliams [at] gmail [dot] com).

“The combination of connecting to a cultured clientele in a central outdoor setting filled with music is unique. Not only have I sold my work consistently to a diverse clientele, I have had people contact me months afterwards based on what they saw at the festival. It’s a great way to expand your client base and contacts, and I hope to continue doing so at the new contemporary jewellery art fair.” - Participating Artist, Artisans Village, TD Toronto Jazz Festival
