What is it?
The Collingwood Art Crawl is a self-guided walking tour of downtown Collingwood’s retail and business sector where each participating venue has a visual artist and/or musical performer at their establishment. Visitors “attend” by walking around town and discovering each venue and what they have to offer. Our 2018 event featured 40 venues, over 40 artists and 40 musicians.
