Creemore Festival of the Arts
September 30, 2022 - October 2, 2022
After a two-year pandemic hiatus, the Purple Hills Arts and Heritage Society (PHAHS) is bringing back the Creemore Festival of the Arts, Friday, Sept. 30 to Sunday, Oct. 2.here.“We are excited about the inclusive programming we have organized,” starts Nadine Melemis Walters, Festival Chair. “Art is reflective of our world. In light of all the activist movements we have been witnessing, absorbing, we knew we needed to broaden the scope of the festival to ensure its cultural relevance.” Creemore will be hosting its first Drag Show, with a runway and cabaret-style seating in the Legion hall. There will also be a PG-13 Drag 101 workshop offering an opportunity for everyone to learn about the history, politics, etiquette and culture of this form of self-expression while getting some awesome hair and makeup tips. The Notorious Cree is being flown in from Alberta to perform an Indigenous hoop dance. And environmentalist, Zwena Gray, will be closing out the festival with her “Black on the Bruce” tales. The core of the Festival remains the Artists on Location. 65 established and emerging regional artists will present new works across a great range of artistic mediums from gouache to mixed media, photography, pottery, oil, acrylic, metal, wood, textiles.
