The Sylvan Circle Tour takes place September 20, 2014. Once again, we will have lots of wonderful exhibitors. We have added two new halls this year (Bruce Mines Community Hall and Echo Bay Elks Lodge) and have sixty artists and artisans exhibiting a wide range of work.

In addition, a number of the exhibitors demonstrate during the day, and local groups provide food and drink at many of the tour sites.


The Sylvan Circle Tour artists invite you to spend a glorious fall day exploring the diverse artistry of our region. We welcome visitors to discover what it means for artists and artisans to live and work in their communities.

The tour is self guided and absolutely free. Look for the Sylvan Circle signs.

The complete tour is approximately 100 kilometres long and is held in 11 community halls ( Echo Bay, Sylvan Valley, Leeburn, Rydal Bank, Bruce Station, Bruce Mines, Desbarats Arena, MacLennan, Bar River, Laird, and Echo Bay Elks Hall), and 3 individual studios.

Enjoy Algoma. The secondary highways of the Algoma region offer wonderful scenery along the Tour. The Fall colours can be brilliant in the middle of September, though some years they are just beginning to turn.
