The Gardiner is thrilled to announce the launch of CLAY, an original in-house restaurant offering seasonal menus of fresh, local fare in collaboration with The Food Dudes. Coming Summer 2018!
This summer, join us for free art workshops and exhibits, live performances, talks, and more, as part of the third edition of the Community Arts Space project, the Gardiner's incubator for arts-based community projects presented by TD Bank Group.
