Mayor's Evening for the Arts

Join us for this dazzling event on November 18, 2019, all in support of Arts in the Parks.

We are thrilled that John Tory has been re-elected as the Mayor of Toronto for the next four years. Toronto Arts Foundation, with the support of Mayor Tory, will return with the Mayor’s Evening for the Arts on Monday, November 18, 2019 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. 

With a goal of raising $1.3 million for Arts in the Parks and other ambitious Toronto Arts Foundation programs championed by Mayor Tory, the 2019 Mayor’s Evening for the Arts will be a glittering affair attended by celebrities, philanthropists, corporate executives and civic leaders. Since Arts in the Parks was established in 2016, Toronto Arts Foundation has raised over $4 million, thanks to the generosity of sponsors, donors, auction participants and ticket buyers.   

Please join Mayor John Tory and Barbara Hackett in support of a vibrant arts community and a vibrant city. Together we can help generate the funds needed to build a creative city. 

"The arts are a unifier – they can bring people together across the city. I’m going to be as committed to [the arts] as I have been going forward ... I think this is the best city and the best country in the world, and the arts are a big part of that."—Mayor John Tory
