about the festival
The New Art Festival (TNAF) is Ottawa's largest non-commercial outdoor art festival. Featuring nearly 200 visual artists working in a wide range of styles and media, this annual event draws thousands of visitors and participants from across Canada and around the world.
TNAF is a non-commercial event. We do not include any mass-produced goods, nor do we have any representation from large chains or corporations. We are a low carbon footprint event and feature food providers from the community.
All of the artwork and food at TNAF are the direct result of the artists and artisans who are featured at our festival. The organizers do not take any percentage of the artists’ sales.

The organizers, past and present, would like to thank the incredible group of artists and visitors who have helped to create such an important and enjoyable festival. Your continued support sustains our desire to offer a unique and creative exhibition space for professional artists. We look forward to sharing a weekend in June with you for years to come!
While the Art in the Park Festival Community is an autonomous corporation and the event is run primarily on the funds raised through artist fees, we would like to thank the following businesses, whose financial assistance supported the festival in its early years: McKeen's LOEB - Glebe, the Glebe Community Association and the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group.
