Festival Events

DesignTO is a non-profit arts organization that curates exhibitions, presentations and educational programming.
DesignTO is best known for the DesignTO Festival, Canada’s leading and largest annual design festival.
DesignTO was founded in 2010 as the Toronto Design Offsite Festival by a group of seven creatives and held its first annual event in January 2011.
The DesignTO Festival has grown 20 times bigger than year one.
The Festival went from 7 days to 10 days, spanning two weekends.

DesignTO brings people together to celebrate contemporary culture, provide opportunities for emerging talent, and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming.
