Artspace Al fresco

Jul 19, 6 pm at Under the Hunter Street Bridge - James Stevenson Park, at the end of Steve Terry Way, Peterborough, ON


Artspace is pleased to invite you to a unique outdoor dining experience, Artspace Al fresco! Enjoy a chef-prepared, three-course meal, complete with complimentary wine and beer under the bright colours and cheerful designs of the Hunter Street Bridge murals. Completed in 2015 and 2016, the murals are landmark examples of fresh, energetic public art in our community. Artspace Al fresco is an opportunity to gather as neighbours and art-lovers around this beautiful work in a new and engaging way.


Come with friends or come to mingle, but be prepared to soak in the summer with smooth tunes from the DJ booth and tasty treats made with Peterborough-area produce. All of the proceeds from this a one-of-a-kind and one-time-only event will support the boundary-pushing and thought-provoking programming Artspace serves up all year round. We hope you will join us!

Purchased tickets can be picked up at the gallery or the night of at the event. If you have any special dietary need please let us know in advance by emailing Bec at
