Autumn Shift Festival
Sunday September 15, 2013
Hot Art Wet City is part of the 4th Annual Autumn Shift Festival on Main Street – a Mount Pleasant, family friendly event that celebrates sustainability, urban gardening, healthy living, art and community in Vancouver. Buy art from local artists Andrea Hooge, Rachael Ashe, Sean Karemaker, Russell Alton, Alice Vogelaar, Jenn Brisson, Josue Menjivar, Char Hoyt, and Mandy Tsung. Plus, check out a mini SNAG, the weekly live-painting and art-raffle that happens every Wednesday night at The Cobalt (917 Main). We’ll be featuring live painting by local talent, and the guy behind SNAG, Drew Young.
Along with the Hot Art Wet City artist area in the parking lot at Main and 7th, the festival also features a local farmer’s market and nursery, three stages including the main stage at Main Street and Broadway, free popcorn & cotton candy at Main Street and 8th Ave, various vendors and plenty of FREE children’s activities! There will also be a sausage BBQ cook-off at 2pm (a fundraiser for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank) at Main Street and 7th Ave and a BLIM fashion show with Liveable Laneways at 4pm.
