Mayor's Evening for the Arts

Save the date! Monday, November 20, 2017.

The Mayor’s Evening for the Arts will be held on Monday, November 20, 2017. Please join Mayor John Tory and Barbara Hackett in support of a vibrant arts community and a vibrant city. 

With the proceeds from the Mayor’s Evening for the Arts, we have established the Arts in the Parks program, a free annual outdoor program that brings arts programming to parks in neighbourhoods across Toronto, with underserved areas being a priority. Toronto Arts Foundation is uniquely focused on connecting every Toronto neighbourhood with the transformative social and economic impact of the arts. Research demonstrates that quality of life across the city improves, and that cities flourish socially and economically, through access to the arts. 2017 proceeds will allow Toronto Arts Foundation to continue to remove barriers of access to the arts, expand the diversity of our programming and increase outreach to even more communities in need.

Tables may be purchased for $10,000 and sponsorship opportunities are available. Click here to view the complete sponsorship package. For further information, please contact Karen Miller, Fundraising Director at 416-224-9990 or email
