Celebrate the arts, savour the flavours of the local food truck and craft brew scene, enjoy the best of music and dance, and check out the handiworks at the artisan fair at Coquitlam’s Kaleidoscope Arts Festival on August 12th.

Kaleidoscope Arts Festival in Coquitlam

Where: Town Centre Park next to Lafarge Lake-Douglas SkyTrain station
When: Saturday, August 12, 2017 from 2:00pm to 10:00pm
Tickets: FREE! All ages.

Kaleidoscope Arts Festival in Coquitlam

Bif Naked will headline on the Plaza Stage, sponsored by Coast Capital Savings and featuring musical acts throughout the day at the amphitheatre-style Town Centre Park Plaza, overlooking scenic Lafarge Lake. With her nine albums, a long list of hits, videos and her new book tucked under her arm, Bif will be rocking the Kaleidoscope stage.

The musical lineup also features jazz/pop singer-songwriter Jennifer Hayes, indie/roots/folk act West My Friend, indie rockers Derrival, and BreakOut West 2017 nominees for Rock Artist of the Year, The Matinée. Also appearing is The Paperboys.

Whether you’re age two or 82, this event is guaranteed to be a highlight of summer. Festival-goers will delight in the vibrant festival atmosphere as roving entertainers and live music fill the park.

Try out a variety of instruments in the Musical Experience zone, from flutes to trombones, with the help of experienced staff from Arts Partner Long & McQuade. See amazing feats during the Big Topp Show circus performance. Add your own thread to a commemorative flag tapestry organized by Place des Arts as a collaborative community art project. Craft your own origami paper heart necklace using ribbon and origami papers. Get your face painted or opt for some body art.

Visit the Coquitlam Public Library tent, peruse the artisan market, watch a performance by the V’ni Dansi’s Louis Riel Métis dancers, and prepare to be dazzled in The Red Ball Show & Workshop, which fuses dance with juggling and comedy.
