Artists and musicians gathered for a very creative day

The Collingwood Arts and Music Festival, formerly held over the August Civic Holiday weekend, was reimagined and reborn as a one-day event taking place on Simcoe St. in downtown Collingwood on June 29th, as a launch to the Canada Day weekend. The date and venue change proved remarkably successful and what a day it was! From host Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts: “Thank you to everyone who made the Collingwood Arts & Music Festival such a great success! What a wonderful Saturday on Creative Simcoe Street! A shout-out to all of the amazing artists, filmmakers, authors, poets, performers and musicians who participated!” Photos/Story: Dave West Photography
