Saturday August 31, 2019  |  11:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Ancient Forest / Chun T'oh Whudujut, Highway 16, 113 km east of PG

Enjoy the beauty, magic and biodiversity of the forest through a fun-filled day of music and arts. The event will begin at 11am with welcoming to the Territory by the Lheidli T’enneh First Nations and a dedication of the festivals in memory of Mary Gouchie by singer-songwriter, Kym Gouchie.

Arts in the Park will begin with local artists and musicians, from dancers and quilters, knitters and painters, sculptors and felters, basket weavers and wood turners scattered throughout the forest performing and showing off their creations. Attendees can wander throughout the forest enjoying the many sights and sounds, while searching for Gandalf and the mystical forest fairies.

If all this excitement makes you hungry there is also lunch available by donation through the Dome Creek Community Association as supplies last.
