Port Moody Youth Arts Festival is Back!

Port Moody Youth Arts Festival 2013

After a highly successful inaugural event in 2012, the Port Moody Youth Arts Festival is back for its second run. This year the event will be presented by the Port Moody Arts Centre – last year it was put on by the Arts and Culture Committee for the City of Port Moody. The festival takes place July 26 and 27, 2013, from 6:00 – 10:00pm at Port Moody City Hall’s Inlet Theatre and Galleria.

The two-day festival features performers from the Tri-Cities are, who range in age from 13 to 18 years old. Presentations from the young artists will include rock bands, short films, dance troupes, a one-act play and a short story reading. There will also be visual art on display in the Galleria starting Tuesday, July 23, 2013, and continuing through Monday, July 29, 2013.

Entry to the Port Moody Youth Arts Festival is open to everyone, and admission is by donation. If that isn’t enough to get you out, we hear that there will be significant door prizes to be won by festival attendees on both nights. On top of all that, Rocky Point Ice Cream is bringing its lovely new Scooper truck to City Hall curbside at 5:30pm on July 26, and $1 from every sale will go to support the Youth Arts Festival. It’s the perfect combination of art, ice cream and philanthropy.

The Port Moody Arts Centre is very excited by this opportunity to work with local youth and showcase their talents. The Youth Arts Festival will be a great chance for teens to build their professional experience and meet their peers. We are also certain that attendees will enjoy the work of young artists, and be inspired by the amazing creative talent we are fostering here in the Tri-Cities. If you have young artists of your own, this is also a great opportunity for them to connect with others.
