Our First Festival Sets the Stage!

Our inaugural festival featured four days of displays, performances, workshops, and interactive arts booths. In a great outpouring of artistic joy, young artists from the Tri-Cities shared their creations with anyone who wished to join them, and the city reaped the benefits of youthful self-expression.

To all our performers, exhibitors, volunteers, professional assistants, and audiences: Thank you. You shaped a consistent sequence of wonderful moments, creating beauty through loving-kindness and artistic expression.

We look forward to next year’s festival, knowing in our hearts that we’ve set in motion something that’s good for our city, good for us all.

Richard Dixon | Festival Co-Chair
Susan Ius | Festival Co-Chair
Gerry Nuttall | Councillor and Chair of Arts & Culture Committee
