About the Festival

LogoFestivaldesartsThe Festival des arts Georgeville-Fitch Bay dates back to the summer of 1983 when a group of local artists organized the first exhibition of their works at Murray Memorial Centre.

The festival grew steadily in importance with more artists from Fitch Bay and the surrounding areas joining in to make it a well attended annual event.

In 1987 the Elephant Barn contributed it’s space, turning the arts festival into a major ‘happening’.

As part of the Circuit des Arts between 1994-2002, our artists earned recognition and a solid reputation of excellence.

In 2003 the Association des artistes Georgeville-Fitch Bay was formed adding the lovely council chambers of the Canton Stanstead and taking the name of ‘Festival des arts Georgeville-Fitch Bay’.

Under the presidency of Mary Cartmel and later of Amanda Healey, Francoise Cloutier and Agnes McKenna Power the festival has flourished and has grown into a much anticipated cultural event in our region and beyond. We now have group exhibits in five historic sites, two in Georgeville, two in Fitch Bay and one in between.

Generally held at the end of July, it is truly a pleasure for the artists to welcome you to its celebration of colour and creativity known as the Festival des arts Georgeville-Fitch Bay.

Welcome to the 15th Edition of the Festival des Arts, Georgeville/Fitch Bay - 2017.

We, the Organizing Committee, are hoping all the 2016 participants will be returning again this year.  We have supplied a downloadable Registration Form on the site and the deadline for the RETURNING MEMBERS is November 30, 2016.

However, based on availability, we should have some spaces available for NEW MEMBERS for the 2017 Festival.  The instructions for applying may be found under the  « to participate » tab

Thank you for your support and we are once again committed to ensuring a wonderful Festival 2017.
