Back in December we suggested that tickets to the upcoming PoMo ArtsFest as the perfect gift for the hard-to-buy-for people on your holiday list. While the holiday season has come and gone, the excitement about the festival hasn’t abated. You may have missed the chance to pass along tickets to a local performance, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t still be adding this event to your list of what to do in the Tri-Cities this winter.
The 2014 PoMo ArtsFest runs from February 20-23 at the Inlet Theatre in Port Moody, featuring events for all ages. Tickets are very affordable, ranging from free to $35 per person. The 16th festival from the Port Moody Arts Centre Society is a winter celebration showcasing local, national and international talent.
If you think that you have to make the trip downtown, struggle to find (and pay for) parking, and battle crowds for great arts and culture, let the PoMo ArtsFest change your mind. Performances include storytelling, slam poetry, percussion, dance, classical music, jazz and more. If you’d like your kids to experience some local culture, check out the Electronic Orchestra Family Night. To find out more about what’s in store, check out the entire program at a glance at www.pomoartsfest.ca/program.
There are also three art exhibitions running during the festival. The Port Moody Arts Centre is presenting their “Twisted” Themed Exhibition from February 20-March 13, 2014. The Port Moody Art Association is running a one-day sale on Sunday, February 23, 2014 at the Port Moody Rec Centre. And the Coquitlam Weavers Guild and Dye Pot Club is running exhibition for the duration of the ArtsFest in the City Hall Galleria, with a ‘spin in’ after the Classical Music Afternoon, on February 23, 2014.
Prepare to be entertained, delighted and enchanted by talented artists and performers, right on your doorstep.
