PINK MARKET is a queer craft, fashion, art & lit fair.
We aim to give queer creators from Toronto and across Canada a platform for their work, connecting them to members of the public as well as fostering a community of LGBTQ artists and makers.
We hold events twice a year: PINK MARKET, held during the early summer to coincide with Toronto's Pride festivities, and PINK XMAS, ahead of the holiday season.
Our sixth edition will be held in May 2018 in partnership with Inside Out Film Festival, a cultural organization committed to challenging attitudes and changing lives through queer cinema.
