Can you believe it! We are having our 20th Anniversary! 

To celebrate we are bringing together Burnt Toast Members and local artisans for a local pop-up mini-market and live music! Not only that, we will be welcoming our new building pals Idle Eyes Photography Collective who will be showing off their space, looking for new members and presenting a photography exhibition.

This is a celebration and fundraising event to keep us trucking through COVID and as artists. All proceeds to the event will be going to ensuring our doors stay open, upgrading our facility as well as supporting art initiatives we have planned for the new year! Any and all contributions and donations are appreciated! Bring cash and cards to spend at the booths! 

Tickets will be on sale for two time slots to ensure max allowable capacity during this time and you are more than welcome to purchase tickets for the full day. Tickets will also be available at the door but pre-purchased tickets will be first serve when there is a line and subject to capacity. 

  • 3:00pm – 7:00pm – 200 tickets – $10 
  • 7:30pm – 11:00pm – 200 tickets – $10

Thank you all for supporting the arts during this time and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces, er, smiling eyes!
