Get ready for the biggest Art After Dark Spring Celebration yet


On Friday, May 24 downtown Kingston will become an art lover’s paradise. Art After Dark celebrates local art and artists in various downtown Kingston locations from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m.

“This year, for Art After Dark, we have 28 participating businesses and artists. That’s our highest number ever in the history of this event!” said Amy Zurrer, Project Manager, Marketing for Downtown Kingston.

“Not only is it an evening of fantastic art, but you can also enter to win a $500 art shopping spree,” Zurrer continued. “Many of the businesses will be having specials, or offering refreshments, or featuring artists at work creating masterpieces right in front of you. It’s a fun way to spend a Friday night and we hope to see the whole city out on May 24 exploring the downtown and discovering a new favourite artist.”

Downtown Kingston has made the Art After Dark experience one that’s easy for all to navigate, with all of the information on the event available on their webpage, which even has a printable map and artist bios.
