Ceramics, glass, leather, fashion, visual art, sculpture, fibre art, jewelry, fine woodworking, music, great food, craft beer and more are what make Haliburton Art and Craft the highlight of summer in cottage country in #myhaliburtonhighlands . 


Haliburton County's largest outdoor event celebrates all that's great about handcrafted and original designs by Canadian artists and artisans. Entry is open to Canadian makers. This is a juried event. The selection committee evaluates entries based on originality, identity of design, craftsmanship and use of materials. We strive to bring festival-goers a well rounded, eclectic and one of a kind outdoor craft show experience that will appeal to the seasoned collector and the first time buyer alike. Whether you live in cottage country  or visiting for a day, week or more if you value creativity and excellence you will not be disappointed.
