Throughout the Mill

The Fourth Annual Festival of Flames, Food and Fine Art! Come join us for this arts-rich weekend with true Canadian flavour. Indoor and outdoor activities for both adults and families.

Enjoy ice skating or cider-jug curling on the millpond, witness ice sculptures in the making, take a snow shoe lesson, view a blacksmith demonstration and demos inside by our other studio artists! Give it a Whirl youself with encaustic painting while your kids learn to build an igloo or take part in an old-fashioned snowball throwing and snow fort-building contest. 

Cozy up by the fire with hot drinks and treats from Shaw’s Creek Cafe and take in the beauty of the mill. Warm up indoors meeting our artists in their open studios or browsing the new art shows in all five of our galleries. Maybe you'll discover that perfect piece of fine or functional art to take home with you to enjoy forever. On Sunday, the Caledon Public Library presents indoor activities for the kids while you catch the art.
