CONTACT Photography Festival

Date(s): May 2024
Location: Throughout Toronto

Each May, the professional photography non-profit CONTACT throws an international festival (formerly the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival), featuring an international bevy of artists. 

For the whole month, Toronto’s art galleries and event spaces fill with work by thousands of photographers, making CONTACT one of the largest such festivals in the world. Not only that, the city itself becomes part of the festival’s exhibits — in the past subway stations, power plants, and even The Bentway beneath the Gardiner Expressway have all been the site of CONTACT Photography Festival installations. It’s easy to see why the CONTACT Photography Festival has been a favourite on Toronto’s spring social calendar since 1997. This festival provides the perfect opportunity for creative minds to explore the city - discovering new pieces, roaming new galleries and finding unique art among busy streets.
