Pelham Art Festival In-person is held annually on Mother's Day weekend in the Meridian Community Centre Accipiter arena in Fonthill, the Town of Pelham

The Pelham Art Festival Committee is preparing for another Festival on Mother’s Day weekend May 6 to 8, 2022, provided it will be prudent to do so. Due to the ongoing unpredictability of COVID-19, the 2020 and the 2021 In-person Festivals were cancelled.

The PAF Committee will make every effort to find a safe way for artists and artisans to promote and sell artwork to visitors, art lovers and collectors, to enjoy original fine arts and purchase the pieces they love. We expect to find a way to make the 35th Annual Mother’s Day In-person Pelham Art Festival a special event.
