Who: This 20TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW will feature the work of 18 Artists residing in Cabbagetown who have juried the Cabbagetown Art & Crafts Sale each year over the past two decades. Now it is their turn to show their creations in such disciplines as jewellery, painting, wood, photography, ceramics and mixed media.

For the past twenty years, The Cabbagetown Art & Crafts Show is held during the Cabbagetown Festival and Riverdale Farm Fall Festival. The show features over 180 artists and artisans during the weekend after Labour Day and attracts 20,000 visitors to Riverdale Park West, in the heart of Toronto's historic Cabbagetown. The Art & Crafts Show was started by Randy Brown who is still the Executive Director.

The funds raised at this annual sale have gone toward encouraging art and crafts in Cabbagetown, mainly through BarnyardArts at Riverdale Farm. Other funds have gone toward local charities.
