Final weekend for Creston’s BC Spirit Festival

Web Lead

As part of the BC Spirit Festival, an art and craft show and sale, and entertainment will be held at the Yahk-Kingsgate Community Hall from 2-8 p.m. on Feb. 26, with a wine and cheese reception from 4-6 and a lasagna dinner at 6.

There will be a real mix of talented local participants such as carvers, dancers, painters, writers, singer songwriters, photographers, filmmakers, jewelers and many more. They are happy to talk about their work, and visitors can also watch as some of them share and demonstrate that creative process. 

All ages will be participating in this event. The school kids will be having a special display and raffling off an etching with the proceeds going to the Wynndel Elementary School parent advisory council.

Plan to spend the afternoon watching a video presentation about Yahk, meet local artists in a warm, friendly atmosphere, relax and listen to the entertainment. The best part is you get the opportunity to purchase original works of local art.

The closing ceremonies of the BC Spirit Festival will be held on Feb. 27 from 1-5 p.m. at the Wynndel Community Hall.

On the lower level will be an art show and sale, enabling artists who missed out on other opportunities during the month to display their talents. Face painting and a spirit plate craft area will also happen downstairs.

Live entertainment will be held upstairs, and feature the music of Fat Charlie, Full Circle, the Kings of Kitchener and Velvet Strings. 

Visual art won’t be forgotten there, either, with newspaper roll end murals on the theme “What spirit means to me” being displayed, having been created by elementary and high school students, children in after school programs, seniors and anyone visiting the Creston and District Community Complex. 

Edible art from over a dozen Creston Valley restaurants will also be on display and will be used for door prizes — so bringing your appetite is a must.
