About the Fam

Harvesting The FAM is Windsor, Ontario’s largest independent inter-arts festival designed for the promotion and development of Film, Fashion, Artistic and Musical talents (FAM), working in any medium or genre. The festival creates a positive, open-minded space for artists to exhibit, promote, perform and sell their works.

This year’s festival runs late September to early October at a variety of venues and spaces transforming the downtown core of Windsor into a cultural mecca for the masses. FAM Festival acts as a collective call to inform the people of Windsor, as well as communities throughout North America, that creativity lives here.

Showcases and events are FREE to the public. There are zero application fees for participating artists and no commissions taken from the sale of works. We work to create a place for emerging talents to be seen and heard. Can you dig it?

Be a part of the festival.

Interested in taking part in this years festival? We are looking for applications from any interested fashion designers, visual artists, film-makers, solo musicians or bands. This year’s festival runs from  late September to early October 2014.

We do things a bit differently at FAM Fest. We don’t think it’s fair that we charge you a fee to tell you did or didn’t make the cut for this year’s event. Our events are free but that doesn’t mean that you won’t be compensated for your time. We have developed a system to put money in the hands of musicians and we take zero commission from the sale of works from any participating artists.

To Apply please fill out the following form and a representative will get in touch with you as soon as humanly possible! Thanks!
