Welcome to Sylvan Circle





The Sylvan Circle Tour takes place September 20, 2014. Once again, we will have lots of wonderful exhibitors. Watch for some different 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 8 community halls ( Echo Bay, Sylvan Valley, Leeburn, Rydal Bank, Bruce Station, MacLellan, Bar River, and Laird), Desbarats Arena, and 3 individual studios.


This year 47 artists and artisans are participating in the tour, exhibiting a wide range of types of work.  In addition, a number of the exhibitors demonstrate during the day, and local groups provide food and drink at a number of the tour sites.

Check out our Sylvan Circle Blend coffee, specially brewed by St. Joseph Island Coffee Roasters for the Sylvan Circle Tour. It's blended to hold its taste as it cools in your travel mug.



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.
