Art Fresco Table Trail

Explore Waterloo Region presents the Art Fresco Public Art Project: a whimsical tour of a series of unique picnic tables hand painted by talented local artisans. These extraordinary pieces are being hosted at various restaurants and patios around the Region to inject some vibrancy into a sector that was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe the project embodies the core values of Waterloo Region: community, inclusivity, and creativity.

Sign-up for the free Art Fresco Table Trail Pass to discover these tables and support local eateries – all from your mobile device. Every check-in represents a chance to win weekly prizes including $100 in gift cards to savour more flavours in Waterloo Region. PLUS, each check-in doubles as an entry for a chance to win a grand prize package valued at over $1,000. It pays to be local!

Some local eateries have even offered perks to sweeten the deal!

(must be 18 or older to be eligible for prizes)

Support Waterloo Region businesses while continuing to act responsibly and following all public health measures. Please check with each business to review complete health and safety information before visiting in-person.
