The City has partnered with Toronto Arts Council and Toronto Arts Foundation to bring exciting new opportunities for individuals, groups and organizations to entertain the public and animate City parks through grassroots, one-day art installations and music performances.

To support artists and musicians interested in these opportunities, the City has added a new, free (except for the insurance) "Arts and Music in Parks" permit category. We've simplified the process, and assigned staff resources to make getting this permit easy and fast - You will get an answer within one week.

Permits in this category will be available from May 1 - October 30.

Pre-Approved Locations for Booking Arts, Music & Movie Nights in Parks
Park locations for these permits have been pre-selected to help the City balance the demand on popular locations and to reduce the time it takes to process the permits.
