The Children’s Arts Festival is back and better than ever! On Saturday, September 17th, the Kamloops Arts Council will be hosting a fun-filled day of artistic performances and engaging activities in Riverside Park.

Non-profits, community groups and arts related businesses are invited to join us on this imaginative and entertaining day at Riverside Park! This is an excellent chance to interact with the community and provide information about yourself.

Activity and theme

We encourage you to plan your activities and booth décor around our river to rainbows theme. You are welcome to have fun with your own dress on the day!

KAC will have a limited supply of tents, tables and table coverings. If you are able to bring your own, please do so. Your table and tent must be decorated to go with the theme. You must produce an arts-related activity that fits the Rivers to Rainbows theme and is eco friendly at your booth from 10-4pm (unless you run out of supplies – no early pack-ups). The activity must be provided free of charge for the children of our community.

Covid-19 Response
The Kamloops Arts Council cannot guarantee that all activities, performances, etc., will be possible under future Covid-19 regulations. In the case that further restrictions are needed due to Covid-19 regulations, you must have a backup plan for your workshop/activity.

Please note, as prepared and preventative as we try to be, there remains the possibility that the Children’s Arts Festival may be cancelled under Public Health Orders. This is the worst-case scenario but is entirely possible.

Criminal Record Check
For Children’s Arts Festival, you are required to complete a vulnerable sector criminal record check as we will be working with children. As you are not employed by the KAC, you will complete a volunteer criminal record check and payment is not required. You will need the access code listed below to identify that you are involved with the Kamloops Arts Council. Alternatively, if you have already completed the online criminal record check, you can give permission to share the results with us.
