18th annual Arts Alive this Saturday

Annual arts festival returns to downtown core on Aug. 20

It’s Alive!

The 18th annual Arts Alive festival happens this Saturday in downtown Langley City. 

And once again, the Fraser Highway one-way will be awash in colour and sound, as artists, artisans, crafters and musicians entertain visitors, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

In addition to checking out some original artwork, including paintings, scuptures, pottery and jewelry, festival goers can listen to live music from any of three stages placed throughout the festival zone.

A children’s fun park will provide age-appropriate activities for younger crowds — including chalk art, face painting and craft making. 

The day wraps up with a performance of As You Like It, presented on the Douglas Park Spirit Square stage, beginning at 7 p.m.  Admission to the play, presented by Bard in the Valley, is free, but donations will be accepted in support of the theatre company.
