About Us

The Skeleton Park Arts Festival is a non-profit annual summer solstice celebration held in and around Kingston’s historic McBurney Park, popularly known as ‘Skeleton Park’ due to its 19th century history as a cemetery. The multidisciplinary festival showcases artists from Kingston and around the world, in addition to a variety of family and heritage activities.

We’re also a year-round, non-profit organization that aims to increase appreciation and access for the arts in Kingston by providing diverse multi-arts programming. Skeleton Park Arts Festival strives to bring together artists from a range of disciplines to present unique and collaborative artistic experiences in a variety of alternative venues while helping to increase community engagement and neighbourhood pride.
