Get ready for an evening of magic!
LUNA Art Festival is back on September 29 from 6pm, bringing the streets to life with amazing art installations and exciting musical performances.
Revelstoke’s own nocturnal arts festival is taking to the streets again and is bigger and better than last year! Featuring 25 carefully selected artists to turn the familiar streets of the city into something new and fantastic- including Juno nominated, Cris Derksen, an Aboriginal cellist and composer who combines her half-Cree, half-Mennonite roots with her classical musical training for an exciting sound. Don’t miss her performance, which will feature a traditional dancer. (Check her out here.)
Other exciting installations to make sure you “catch” include the School of Fish, an underwater experience in the centre of town, created by Begbie View Elementary students. This multimedia installation features 360 pieces of unique fish art! The reincarnated Powder Slug (the chairlift from the old Powder Springs Resort) will be back too, offering rickshaw rides throughout the festival and vendors will be selling LUNA drinks and snacks to keep you fuelled and full of energy.
Of course, there will be lots of surprises on the night, guaranteed to delight and amaze. Be sure to follow @lunaartfest on Instagram or Luna Art Fest on Facebook for updates and sneak peeks at what they have in store!
To help make your LUNA experience even better, this year there will also be an interactive app, available in September, to guide guests through the installations and make sure no fun is missed.
Be sure to dress for the weather as lots of the events are outdoors and feel free to let out your inner LUNAtic by dressing up to become part of the festival fun. And of course, don’t forget your dancing shoes!
