About our location

Artscape Gibraltar Point is an artist retreat centre located in the former Toronto Island Public School, just steps from one of the most beautiful freshwater beaches in the world. This is paradise – just a 10 minute ferry ride from downtown Toronto! The festival and campsite are both located outside on the grounds of the centre. The campsite is intimate – this is urban camping, not deep-forest camping, so be prepared to get to know your neighbours. Camping is available for a lucky select few, but is not mandatory! Festival-only and single-day tickets are also available – and for this first time this year, we are offering a small number of VIP Rooms in the Artscape Gibraltar Point centre. See tickets page.

Home to both year-round and short-term resident artists, AGP is located on the main island roadway, halfway between Hanlan’s Point and Centre Island (443 Lake Shore Rd.), and 20 minute walk from either ferry dock.

  • Washrooms — portable toilets (public washrooms nearby)

IslandCafe Photo Island Cafe

The Island Cafe serves up local and garden fresh comfort food and old school baked goods. This year, we have our homemade local grass-fed beef burgers and our awesome vegan nut burger, our classic tacos, and a French-fry station. If you’re around for camper breakfasts, we’ll have veggie and meaty breakfast burritos, fruit salad, homemade granola with yogurt. We’ll also be serving some homemade cookies and muffins.
Monarch Tavern The Monarch Tavern

The Monarch Tavern kitchen provides fresh affordable comfort food to foodies across Toronto and the GTA. Our pulled pork is locally farmed, slow-roasted, and fork-pulled with care. We serve this juicy goodness on a freshly baked pada bun and then top it with handmade coleslaw and our special house BBQ sauce. Try our soft-shell tacos made with 100% corn or our mini-slider bao buns.
Little Sea Little Sea Icees (and Wraps)

Need a little nourishment? Our collard wraps will fill you up and boost your energy with fresh vegetables, hummus and other goodies, wrapped in a collard green (kind of like lettuce had a baby with a tortilla). We’ll also be serving lemon and fruit icees to help you cool down! P.S. We’re called Little Sea because we think Lake Ontario is actually a sea — happy swimming!

Purveyors of the finest handcrafted ice pops and cordials, in a myriad of flavours from Raspberry Hibiscus to Strawberries’n’Cream to Kicky Key Lime, The Pop Stand is going to keep you cool when you need to chill on the beach.
