The heart of downtown Brampton comes alive this weekend with a rich flow of artwork and creativity.  

ARTBeat Brampton will be an inspirational art walk through the downtown core.

This free public event features local artists and artisans paired with downtown businesses with which they will display their works. Guests can participate in tours that are either guided or self-directed with the help of event maps.

This year’s event aims to enhance community engagement by including art-making stations and an arts marketplace on Saturday, October 19 in a vibrant Vivian Lane activation.

The event kicks off Friday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m., and continues on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 11 a.m. You can get started by heading to Beaux Arts Gallery (70-74 Main Street North), where you can meet with tour guides and pick up walking maps.
