FOOD ART FUN: Art in the Food Forest is a community-based street art event created by MyCDC in partnership with the South End Community Association (SECA), the AEIOU Art Ensemble, Nanaimo Arts Council and Arrowsmith Media. The first FOOD ART FUN was on August 13th, 2016. Over the next few years the event has grown. In 2017, we also took over the street in front of food forest and included a local food and crafts’ market. By 2018, we had over 400 visitors with over 10 hands-on arts workshops and activities for all to join in!

This year 2019, FOOD ART FUN is on SUNDAY, AUGUST 11th 12:00-4:00


FOOD ART FUN is a celebration of Art, Community & the Environment!

Live music, food, arts and crafts, local vendor market, face painting and much much more.  Every year we produced beautiful art work to beautify our neighbourhoods. Come be part of this creative change!

We are always looking for new vendors, performers, artists, crafts’ person and volunteers! If you are interested please contact us at:
