The 32nd annual Art at the Dock took place along the waterfront and community hall in Hilton Beach, Ontario on Sunday afternoon.
The heatwave was definitely in full swing as folks took in the myriad of artists who shared their talent from across several genres.
Art at the Dock is a favourite for locals and visitors to the region, and is always scheduled for the 3rd Sunday in July.
From 11 – 4 pm, the waterfront and village of Hilton Beach was a pretty busy place. Stained glass, painting, photography, jewelry, wood, textiles, fused glass, and many more creations were found.
The Paul DellaVedova Band rocked out the deck at the Island Bar and Grill, located right along the waterfront.
Hilton Beach Deputy Clerk, Paula Cormier told Superior Media “We had over 40 of the finest artists Northern Ontario registered to participate in the multi-media event. This is something we look forward to all year.”
A tractor was always ready to trot with a wagon – people mover – hitched to the back. The tractor is donated by Greg Gilbertson, and the wagon is supported by Jocelyn Township. Darren Moore told Superior Media that he is now into his third year as the tractor driver. His wife Julie, who is on Council, was also part of the days activities, serving up food from the BBQ and offering cold beverages on behalf of the Hilton Beach Recreation Committee.

The wagon was supplied by Jocelyn Township and the tractor was provided by Gilbertson’s. The wagon shuttled people around the village, offering a little respite from the steep climb up to the Community hall from the waterfront.
The Village of Hilton Beach is located on the Northeast shore of St. Joseph Island – what many refer to as ‘the heart of the Great Lakes’.
Hilton Beach has been an important port-of-call and a popular tourist destination for over a century.
The Hilton Beach Marina is one of the largest in the North Channel and one of the most scenic on the Great Lakes.
