Our History:

For 45 years we have been welcoming and hosting creative thinkers and artists in our community. Founded in 1978, the Art Gallery of Burlington reflects the unique vision of artists in many ways because it grew from the efforts of several Burlington visual arts cooperatives and guilds which recognized the need for a home for artists working in the region. Seven guilds now create within the AGB along with the public, using studios dedicated to photography, hand-weaving, spinning, sculpture, woodcarving, fine arts, pottery, and hooking craft.

Today, we are a multi-faceted centre providing studio space, exhibitions, acclaimed ceramics collection, art education and a dynamic visitor’s experience.

Village Cigar Company & Barbershop.png
2049 Pine Street, Unit: 64, Burlington, ON

Founded in the early stages of 2012 through a collective love of cigars, the desire to own and operate their own business and to create a space that would make everyone who walks through the door feel welcome, comfortable and included, came Village Cigar Company & Barbershop.

Burlington natives Jerry Filice & Ryan Baker longed for their own business in their home town. After signing the lease in Village Square in beautiful Downtown Burlington, Ontario in May 2012, they wasted no time starting demolition just moments after the keys landed in the palms of their hands. The next two months were spent relentlessly charging forward to build the shop they always envisioned. And from that shop build, grew a community onto itself. They opened our doors to much anticipation on July 20th, 2012.

Since that date, they have not only thrived in the revitalized historic Village Square, but also expanded with two more locations in both Downtown Oakville & Downtown Guelph.

Their meticulously maintained, custom built walk-in humidors are their ultimate pride and joy but that’s just the beginning of the experience. They are more than happy to spend time in there with you, talking about your likes and preferences, but it’s when you step outside of the humidor where the community truly takes shape. You are welcome at any time to sit outside with your newly acquired cigar and relax as we take in a movie, a game, or just to watch the world go by during this time of bliss.

For those of you who wish to feel as though you have stepped back in time, they also offer traditional barbering services. VCC&B have expert in-house barbers offering the finest in men’s haircuts and traditional hot towel straight razor shaves via one of our many antique barber chairs.

If you’re looking for an extra special, feel-good gift for someone this season, VCC&B sells their empty cigar boxes for $10 each and donate 100% of those funds to the Burlington Humane Society!

The gents are looking forward to seeing you soon.
