The Fernwood Art Stroll annual studio tour is happening again this summer on the weekend of June 10 and 11, from 11am to 4pm each day. The Stroll, in it’s 15th year, gives the opportunity for Fernwood and Oaklands residents, and visitors from outside our area to experience the studios, homes, and gardens of the participants in an intimate way, to meet and talk to the artists, and to view a variety of great artistic creations. Make sure you start early because, from past reports, it’s actually hard to fit in seeing all the exhibitors on both days.

If you are an interested artisan, there is still time to join the Stroll. The deadline to have the $100 entry fee in to our bookkeeper is February 15, 2023, and after that, all other info should be in by March 1, 2023. These dates and everything else you need to know, including the membership form, can be found by visiting

We’ve found that in early June, the weather is usually good, so plan to take a leisurely walk along the tree lined streets of Fernwood and Oaklands, and see what the neighbourhood artists have to offer this year. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks so much if you have come to the Stroll in past years. We look forward to seeing you again!
