Since opening in 1999, Artscape Gibraltar Point has become one of the Toronto Islands most popular event venues, Just a 10-minute ferry from downtown Toronto, this former island school house is surrounded by over 46 acres of parkland and is steps way from a beautiful sandy beach with stunning views of Lake Ontario. Nearby is the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse, Toronto’s oldest landmark.

Our event rental business operates as a social enterprise, meaning that revenues from venue rentals support the building’s cultural programming and services.

Artscape Gibraltar Point has become widely recognized as a perfect place to host a variety of event such as retreats, weddings and even music festivals. For more information about our available event spaces, policies and to make a booking, please visit

Good Neighbour Policy

If you are holding an event at the Artscape Gibraltar Point, note that we abide by a policy in which amplified sound (voice or music) or loud performances that might be heard outside the building may not begin before 7:30 AM nor extend past 12:00 AM Monday through Sunday.

Artscape Gibraltar Point has made the difficult decision to cease short-term residency and event operations for the rest of June and the first two weeks of July, due the flooding on the Toronto Islands and our concerns for public safety. Stay tuned for updates!
