Something for All Ages and Interests

This year’s expanded Kaleidoscope festival offers three different venues and vibes to explore:

  • For a concert experience with food trucks and live music, get into festival mode Aug. 19 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the updated festival hub at Town Centre Park, 1299 Pinetree Way. Bring your own chairs or blanket and watch headliner Dan Mangan – a world-renowned B.C. indie rocker who has won two JUNOs and listed for two Polaris Music Prizes – and another live act perform on the TD Community Plaza Stage overlooking beautiful Lafarge Lake. 
  • Immerse yourself in the arts on Aug. 20, 12 to 4 p.m. at Blue Mountain Park, 975 King Albert Ave. Get creative with hands-on arts activities, watch music and cultural dance performances, browse local art club displays and sample food vendor fare. 
  • Enjoy family-focused fun on Aug. 21, 12 to 4 p.m. at Victoria Park, 3435 Victoria Dr. Experience an artful afternoon with live music, storytelling, cultural workshops and creative arts activities. Food vendors will also be on site.
