Kaleidoscope Arts Festival in Coquitlam
Where: Town Centre Park next to Lafarge Lake-Douglas SkyTrain station
When: Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 2:00pm to 10:00pm
Tickets: FREE! All ages.
Kaleidoscope Arts Festival is Coquitlam’s free, full-day celebration of the arts with dynamic live performances across two stages, with Juno award-winning band, The Philosopher Kings, headlining the TD Community Plaza stage.
The schedule includes dancers, multicultural acts and interactive community art, and craft beer and food available for purchase. You won’t want to miss this event, here are 5 (of many) reasons why!
1. FREE CONCERTS
Featured performers on two stages include The Philosopher Kings, Mathew V, Dawn Pemberton, Kytami and The Kwerks. Plus, other unique and engaging artists throughout the festival site. What I loved about the concerts last year, on top of the great views of the stage from all over the amphitheatre, was how engaged everyone was. Young and old people were picnicking, dancing, and singing along.
2. The Spectacular Setting
Town Centre Park’s main feature is Lafarge Lake, but there’s also basketball courts, a spray park, gardens, and more. The festival site is situated on the edge of the lake with a panoramic backdrop that includes Burke and Eagle Mountains. In 2017 it was named, “Best Public Space” by the Canadian Institute of Planners.
3. Brew Corner and Food Truck Alley
Your favourite food trucks all in one place along with cold craft beer and cider to enjoy throughout the festival site – there’s no beer garden fence! Grab some food truck fare, picnic by a stage, and enjoy your favourite craft beer or cider right there too.
4. Spark Your Creativity
Hands-on activities, crafts, and interactive performances will keep you engaged with the arts aspect of the festival. Join artist TaraLee Houston at The Studio as builds her interactive textile art “Weave Community Circles.” Using a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors from recycled fabric and ribbon you can join in the creation of this giant art installation. Visit the Eco Art, Writers’ Corner, and Improv exhibits too!
5. FREE! And Easy to Get To
Town Centre Park is located right next to the Lafarge Lake-Douglas SkyTrain station. There’s also plenty of parking available throughout the entire park area.
