Wild for the Arts Festival
September 20 & 21, 2014
Wild for the Arts is a community based cultural event that celebrates nature as a source of inspiration for creativity. We offer a full schedule of events and activities amid the autumn beauty of MacGregor Point Provincial Park. Featured are nature-inspired visual art and written works.
The Wild for the Arts Festival includes live music, drop-in art, dance, theatre and family fun! A feature of the program is the Campsite Studio Tour where visitors have the opportunity to appreciate the arts in a natural setting. Visual arts include paintings, drawings, pastels, collage, photography and sculpture, stained glass, decorative art, pottery, jewelry, quilting, weaving, wood work. Written works include poetry, fiction, and non-fiction; either commercially or author published.
Hikes and workshops explore nature photography, story writing, visual arts and more! The whole family can take part in scavenger hunts, the kids creativity site, meet talented local artists on the 'Campground Studio Tour' art show and sale, and enjoy our featured performers on Saturday and Sunday. Artists and authors interested in participating in this festival in 2014 should check out the Vendor and Participant Information.
