The Youth Arts and Cultural Festival is designed to introduce youth to visual, cultural and performing arts and will allow youth to experiment with different types of artistic forms.

“We’re really excited — it’s going to be 28 days of absolute fun for the kids on the Peninsula and the activities are affordable for everyone, including lots of free entertainment,” said Lynn Fanelli, development coordinator at the Mary Winspear Centre.

The festival will offer programs for youth ages three to 18 ranging from performing arts camps (advance registration required) to free readings by children’s author, Nikki Tate. The festival runs July 15 to August 10 and offers programs and activities for every budget.

“Other events and programs will include things like sewing for beginners, screen printing, costume design, and an instructional face painting class,” said event organizer Charlotte Rennison.
