TOQUE is Western Front’s annual fundraiser and craft fair. Held every December in the historic Luxe Hall at Western Front, the two-day event features a curated selection of talented artists, designers and artisans and draws 1500 to 2000 visitors annually.
Invited vendors contribute to TOQUE with wares ranging from books, cards, jewellery, textiles and ceramics, to one-of-a-kind objects and tasty treats. Featured vendors have included Simply Read Books, Banquet, Contexture Design, Anita Sikma, Fieldwork, Cumulus Project, among many others. Also available are Western Front publications and a limited edition artist-designed tea towel commissioned for TOQUE from artists such as Jason McLean, Cindy Mochizuki, Jeff Hamada, Julie Morstad, Instant Coffee, Sylvain Sailly and Arvo Leo.
Proceeds from TOQUE support the art and music programs at Western Front.
