BIG on Bloor Festival 2021

Sat July 24th 2021 @ 8:00 am - Mon August 2nd 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Free

BIG on Bloor Festival opens its 14th year on July 24th, 2021 with the launch of several art installations scattered throughout the Bloordale neighborhood; Bloor Street West, Dufferin to Lansdowne. Celebrating community magic, creativity, and diversity through arts and culture, while showing love to the local storefronts that make the strip so special.

Various location-based projects will be on view 24/7 until the end of August 2021. Curated by Festival Director Darren Leu, anticipate impactful murals, large-scale installations and window exhibitions by Jana Ghalayini, Daniel Hunt, Curtia Wright, Crafty Chas, Card Yard and several more.

Programming continues with “BIG off Bloor”, a digital catalogue featuring concerts and art workshops by local creatives. Artists present workshops through live video streams, engaging with participants to not only educate but collaborate on the final artwork. Participants are encouraged to follow along at-home and submit their work to be included in a larger installation created by many other participants. The quilt-like piece advances community storytelling and visualizes the theme of PATCHWORK.

How to participate:

In Person: Bloordale (Bloor St W between Dufferin and Landsdowne) will feature outdoor murals, window displays, public installations and other projects that encourage visitors to the area in a safe manner, adhering to health and safety protocols established by our government and health officials.

Online: Follow Big on Bloor’s Facebook Page or their website for more information.
