The Mississippi Mills Art Romp on Thanksgiving weekend 2021 brings together the combined artistic vision of the artists from 3 iconic events – the Maple Run Tour, the Crown and Pumpkin Studio Tour, and Art in the Attic from the Almonte and Area Artists’ Association. Also included in this MMills-wide event are individual artist studios and the Almonte Potters Guild. It’s a true collaboration.

This special event will present over 40 artists and artisans. Throughout Mississippi Mills, from Pakenham, to Cedar Hill, to Clayton and Union Hall and into Almonte,  they are waiting to welcome you into unique shops, heritage buildings, individual studios – and even a brewery and a Christmas tree farm. 

All of the Art Romp artists are so excited to be back after a long long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Appropriately at Thanksgiving, they are also thankful to meet you. 

The artists in the Maple Run section of the Mississippi Mills Art Romp are listed below by location and  alphabetically by first name.  For other artists in the Art Romp, refer to the Crown and Pumpkin and Art in the Attic websites.
