2019 Art & Animation Program

The Art & Animation Program is unique to the Festival Campground. Each year we take submissions for various art projects in hopes of bringing them to life in the campground. This year we’ve brought back some festival favourites and added some awesome new projects! We will be rolling out 6 per week for the next few weeks so keep checking back here for more!

Juke Joint 

When the festival is done for the day, we’ll be dancin’ and hootin’ and stompin’ into the night. With nightly shows after Mainstage ends, come see some of the best musical talents the campground has to offer.
