About Apples & Art Studio Tour
Held during the last weekend of September, the Apples & Art Studio Tour provides a collective venue for artists up their studio space to the community and visitors, encouraging them to find out more about the arts through discussion about the work, their processes and through various hands on demonstrations that would take place during the tour.
The tour is organized by a group of artists working with Your Arts Council. It was the recipient of the Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for Tourism in 2016. The 2019 tour had 33 locations and featured more than 80 artists, with more than $70,000 worth of art sold.
