On Saturday, Oct. 24, the Covered Street Barn at Artscape Wychwood Barns was transformed into a Halloween festival welcoming over 1000 ghouls and goblins, princesses and superheroes all ages. BOO! at the Barns, presented by WBCA and Artscape, is an annual, multi-vendor event and a neighbourhood favourite.
Thank you to the Event Sponsors, Arlington Dental & Vaughan Road Dental and The Josie Stern Team as well as In-Kind Sponsors Above Ground Art Supplies, Barefoot Wine, Steam Whistle Brewing and Pizza Del Arte for helping to make the magic happen.

On August 28, 2013, we hosted the first Artscape Street Party at Artscape Wychwood Barns. The theme was circus: think aerialists hanging from the ceiling, all kinds of buskers, food trucks, and free snow cones and popcorn! More than 800 people showed up for this family-friendly event on the last Wednesday evening of the summer.
We were very lucky to have some exceptionally talented photographers and bloggers in attendance. Check out some amazing photos courtesy of Alejandro Freeland and Village Living, and detailed recaps from T.O. See and T.O. Do and The Roaming Life.
The Grid‘s Burger Week is a celebration of all things meat-plus-bun, with more than 60 restaurants around the city creating special edition burgers for just $5. It culminates in Burger Day at Artscape Wychwood Barns, a street party where the restaurants offer slider versions of their special burger, plus side dishes, sweet treats and icy cold beer. On June 2, 2013, people came out in droves on and withstood several rain showers in the name of all-you-can-eat burgers. Over 40,000 sliders were consumed in five hours! You can watch The Grid‘s video recap here.
Now in its fourth summer at Artscape Gibraltar Point, the 2012 ALL CAPS! Island Festival featured art installations, BBQs, swimming, bonfires, camping, games, film screenings and a killer line up of indie bands like Yamantaka//Sonic Titan, DD/MM/YY and Maylee Todd.
