The 2020 Pakenham Maple Run Tour brings together the works of 35 seasoned artists, artisans and craftspeople  – including 6 who are NEW to the Tour this year.

These creative individuals share a spirit of self expression which fuels the fire of their creative process.  Located in 10 tour stops, their works are perfectly blended and showcased with the walls of unique shops, heritage buildings, historic general store, one room school house, working studios, serene retreat house, public library, craft brewery and cider house.

The artists are unique.  Their approach refreshing.   The Tour brings both you and the artist together to enjoy a relaxing conversation, casually view their pieces and make purchases during the Tour weekend.

All of the artists, artisans and craftspeople look forward to the Pakenham Maple Run Tour as it is the first Tour of the new year and, like you, are all are happy to celebrate the Spring season.  Whether adding to your personal collection, choosing a perfect gift, or tasting the delicious fare of artisan food visionaries and master beverage producers, to take the Tour is pure nourishment for the soul.
