The City of Ontario’s Department of Museum, Arts, & Culture and the Chaffey Community Museum of Art are excited to announce the fifth annual Ontario Arts Festival. The festival, which averages approximately 1,000 – 2,000 visitors annually, exemplifies the City’s commitment to making Ontario the destination for arts and culture in the Inland Empire.

This one-day event features over 50 artist booths offering a wide variety of visual arts, as well as other attractions for Festival visitors, including free entry to museums, food trucks, a beer garden, art activities, and more.

The festival features a wide range of artists and mediums, including but not limited to:  fine art, textiles, ceramics, digital art, photography, jewelry, metal, wood and more.   

All applicants are reviewed by a volunteer jury made up of museum organizations, artists, and local residents. 

We are also pleased to introduce a BEST IN SHOW award that will be selected and designated on the day of the festival.  The winning artist will receive $500 and bragging rights!
