At the 5th Urban Arts Festival, we plan on having a wide variety of entertainment and activities for people of all ages. Last Art Festival, we had an estimated 300 participants, and this year we anticipate a much larger crowd which will have an even greater impact. This year Hyde Park is celebrating 150 years and the Art Festival is one of its featured art events. We have many activities planned for this year:


  • Battle of the Arts: artists compete against each other in a timed creation of artwork for cash prizes. Talented local artists aged 16 and up will create original works of art right before your eyes. 
  • Local musicians, singers, dancers, poets and spoken word artists live on stage.
  • Steam-roller Mega Printing: Artists and their teams will ink pre-carved relief blocks and then roll over them with an industrial steamroller to create their oversized prints.
  • Art Vendors and Graffiti Artists
  • Art and poetry creation tables for children and adults.
  • We also have invited vendors to promote their products.


This event is free and open for every one of all ages.
