About the show: The Beaches Arts & Crafts Show features 150 artists, artisans & designers from across Canada and attracts thousands of visitors looking for quality handmade products. It takes place in the beautiful Kew Gardens Park in Toronto's Beaches District.

The show started out modestly in 1984 with 25 exhibitors and at that time it was just about the only show event in the Beaches. Since then it has grown to showcase 150 Canadian artists, artisans & designers. Exhibitors are juried and selected based on the quality of their work and the originality of their design.

Now 28 years later, the show includes a large variety of Canada's finest handmade works including visual arts, photography, jewellery, leather work, fashions, ceramics, glass, gourmet foods and much much more. The show will be held on Saturday June 9th and Sunday June 10th, 2012, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
