Sudbury Celebration of the Arts


The Sudbury Arts Council would like to thank the community for its patience and understanding as there was no community arts award presentation in 2019. We chose to take the 2019 year as a chance to make improvements and adjustments to the event, in order to best move forward. The event's purpose has been and always will be to honour the professional artists who have made a career in Sudbury and have bettered our community through their work.
One main change you might notice is the change in name - formerly called the Mayor's Celebration of the Arts - the event now and moving forward will be known as the Sudbury Celebration of the Arts.
We are proud to present the re-focused and re-vamped Sudbury Celebration of Arts once again on Thursday, June 4, 2020.
The nomination form is available below, and further event details will be coming in the near future.
