​The New Art Festival (TNAF) is Ottawa’s longest-running outdoor art exhibit. This juried festival features handmade, one-of-a-kind artwork by nearly 200 visual artists working in a wide range of styles and media that reflect artistic excellence, innovation and strong craftsmanship. Every June – rain or shine – thousands of artists and art enthusiasts gather in beautiful Central Park, the Glebe to be inspired in a vibrant, relaxed environment and meet with friends old and new.

The New Art Festival is a community-oriented event for emerging and established professional artists to promote their studio practices and to network directly with the public and their colleagues. Organized to strengthen the connections among artists, the larger arts community and the general public, it attracts thousands of visitors annually. Artists working in all media – from painting to ceramics, photography to wood, textiles to jewellery – travel from throughout Ontario, Quebec and the rest of Canada to participate.
