2017’s Perth Autumn Studio Tour

The Perth Autumn Studio Tour opens its studio doors this Thanksgiving Oct 7-9th, 2017.

Our Tour is 25 this year! Come out to our gorgeous corner of Ontario and celebrate the boundless creativity and beauty our studios will be offering you this Thanksgiving weekend. Be sure to also plan a stop for a DEE-licious lunch at our local Brooke Valley School. Meals made with local ingredients and heart! Proceeds all go to support the school.

21 artists at 6 studio locations just west of Perth, give visitors the opportunity to purchase unique items directly from the makers. Studios are open Saturday – Monday, 10am -5pm. Visit the website for details and a downloadable map

Located within 25 kilometres of picturesque Perth, the Tour showcases one of Eastern Ontario’s finest selections of contemporary fine arts and crafts against a backdrop of Mother Nature at her best. The real heart of the Perth Autumn Studio Tour is of course, the creative process that allows us to produce the work we love. Some studios are able to give demonstrations but many are given over to the studio tour and guest artists so this is not possible.

Dates : Saturday, October 7 to Monday, October 9, 2017
