Sponsored by Impressions Gallery and staffed by its volunteers, Arts Fest will span the artistic hub of Spirit Square, Tidemark Theatre and Campbell River.

River City Arts Fest is Campbell River and North Island’s largest outdoor artistic venue, providing exposure for emerging and seasoned artists of Vancouver Island and the surrounding islands. Arts Fest offers a wide range of exciting, artistic venues, unique designs, interactive art events, opportunities to chat with talented artists & artisans, lively musicians and entertainers, and delicious food to savour.

Organizers endeavour to add new and exciting features every year, providing fun for all ages, and a spirit of inclusion.

The 2014 festival featured 130-plus artists showcasing their works, in an interactive, daylong event.
