NEW WARMER DATES! SAME COOL FEST: 7-9 June 2019

After 10 years of bringing In the Soil Arts Festival to downtown St. Catharines, festival organizers met with and surveyed our community for feedback on where to go for the next 10 years. The feedback has indeed been fruitful and includes our decision to move the festival dates. This year we are hopeful for the wonderful possibilities warmer weather may bring to our audiences and artists. Mark your calendars folks, the 11th annual In the Soil Arts Festival is set to take over downtown St. Catharines 7, 8, 9 June 2019.

Music, theatre, film, installations, one-time happenings, street art, comedy and more.

In the Soil Arts Festival is an explosion of creativity in downtown St. Catharines at the end of April each year.

The festival nurtures the creation of new work and provides intimate and uncommon platforms for audiences to experience work by contemporary performing and literary artists, musicians and media artists.
