Laugh along at Creemore arts festival
The performers for this year’s Creemore Festival of the Arts have been announced. The three day celebration of creativity and community, running September 29 to October 1, will feature award-winning comedians and musicians that are sure to draw a crowd.
Organizer Nadine Melemis Walters encourages people to get their ticket right away.
“Last year was the first time we included performers in our festival and the response was amazing. The shows sold out quickly, and with the great acts we have for 2023 we expect the excitement to be there again.”
Kicking off the weekend is Martha Chavez, award-winning comedian, writer, and actor whose career spans over two decades. Chavez describes herself as the “most famous Nicaraguan- Canadian LGBTQ+ stand-up comedian in the world.” She can frequently be heard on CBC’s The Debaters, Laugh Out Loud and Because News. This Comedy Kick Off takes place at theCreemore Legion on Friday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m.
On Saturday night The Poets, a Tragically Hip cover band from Moosenee and Moose Factory, will take to the stage. They are renowned for translating Can-con faves into the Cree language.
As always visual art will be the backbone of the Festival with over 60 artists showing their works throughout the village of Creemore. A marquee show by internationally recognized artist Steve McDonald will focus on his latest work, the use of artificial intelligence in the visual arts, and this controversial technology. Hands- on creative activities will be available throughout the weekend. All of this is provided at no cost.
“We are so pleased with this stellar line up of talent and invite everyone to join in the fun,” encourages Melemis Walters. For more info visit www.phahs.ca.
