Now in its 29th year, the Pelham Art Festival is the premiere spring art exhibition in Southern Ontario. Over 70 juried artists exhibit artworks ranging from original paintings in oil, acrylic, encaustic, pastel, pottery, ceramic, raku, woodcarving, glass and jewellery. There is something for every taste and every budget.

Proceeds benefit Pelham Libraries and Community Arts projects. The Pelham Art Festival has proudly donated over $375,000 back to the community.

If you have something that you'd like to donate to this year's Prom Project, we invite you to drop it off at any PenFinancial location!
