25th Annual Arts in the Garden

Arts in the Garden hosted by North Van Arts is an annual outdoor community event based on the North Shore. A perennial favourite for art and garden lovers everywhere. Gardens and all variety of artists will be positively blooming and workshops will help everyone to grow their talents!

This year it takes place this coming Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26, bringing visual artists, musicians, performers, and workshops to ten outdoor spaces across the North Shore.

This event is an encounter of people and is in its 25th year running. Hosted on the last weekend of May, Arts in the Garden has been bringing arts to garden spaces across the North Shore since 1999. The event has been expanding and changing ever since its creation, gradually adding a minimum of two visual artists in each garden, and live music throughout the full event weekend. In 2021, the online event expanded to include performance arts, engagement activities, and workshops. Each of these elements were brought into 2022’s in-person event, along with Feathers and Fungi, a workshop series hosted at Maplewood Flats in partnership with Wild Bird Trust of BC.

All Arts in the Garden locations are listed on the webpage panels linked in the menu, or through the ‘read the event guide’ tab below. Garden pages include parking and transporation information.
