Studio Tours

Discover some of Ontario’s longest running and most popular studio tours

Did you know that Kawarthas Northumberland has some of Ontario’s best & longest-running studio tours? Every September, the region’s talented artists invite the public to explore their studios.

Just an hour east of Toronto, some of Northumberland County’s most talented artists open their studios for you to explore. Participating artists are tucked away in historic towns such as Port Hope and Cobourg and throughout the beautiful Northumberland Hills.

The Victoria County Studio Tour is perfectly located for enjoying fall colours in Kawartha Lakes, and lovely restaurants and other good food (think, butter tarts). This annual studio tour is on the weekends of 28-29 September and then 5-6 October. The artists love company and love to answer any questions you may have about their art.

Celebrating its 35th year, the  Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour is sponsored by the Art Gallery of Peterborough and is an opportunity for the public to visit artists where they live and work. Studios and galleries will be open Saturday September 21 and Sunday September 22, from 10 am to 5 pm to display the talents of a rich diversity of juried artists. Admission is free to all locations.
