Art in the Park


Mark your calendars for ART IN THE PARK 2017
Art in the Park was first organized in 1970 by the Art Gallery of Windsor, which was at that time housed in Willistead Manor. The first event welcomed guests from all around Ontario including an unannounced guest: Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, W. Ross Macdonald. In 1978, the event was given to the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) to continue this great annual tradition.
The event continues to grow and change to accomodate its visitors needs, as shown in 2007 when Willistead Manor was opened for the first time ever for free tours. The guests enjoyed a historic “walk through time”, as the original architectural plans of Willistead Manor were presented by the original architectural firm. Also showcased were historical photos of the Art in the Park event, Windsor, Walkerville and Hiram Walkers. Visit Willistead Manor now and discover Events in the Manor – a showcase of local arts organizations offering year-round workshops, exhibitions, music and theatre for you to enjoy!

Join us again this year and experience this fantastic event that supports great local causes and charities!
