BC Day Long Weekend 2019, August 2nd – 5th August | Wells & Barkerville, BC

The Cariboo’s largest celebration of music and art, ArtsWells Festival, is back for its 16th season in the colourful community of Wells and the historic goldrush town of Barkerville, BC from August 2 – 5, 2019. 1st Release tickets are now available, don’t miss your chance to be part of the magic for this special price.

Known as the “festival of all things art,” ArtsWells showcases hundreds of artists working in an array of art forms and musical genres in unique venues throughout the two towns. Intimate rooms like the Sunset Theatre in Wells or St. Saviour’s Church in Barkerville Historic Town provide space for artistic reverie while the Wells Community Hall and the Outdoor Stage give you room to get down on the dance floor. With both towns creating the festival site, arts and culture abound on every street corner including visual art installations, roving performers, parades, literary readings, theatre shows and inspiring music from morning until night. Delve further into the experience of art with the many workshops and special collaborations that take place throughout the weekend, or head down to the creek to soak up the sounds of a spontaneous musical jam.

At the heart of it all, ArtsWells offers four fun-filled days of creative community and artistic connection with exceptional musical experiences for every taste under the rainbow, young and old. It welcomes everyone to be a participant and dive into the diversity and beauty of art that exists in our own backyard and across the globe.

 Weekend passes start at $160 are available from www.artswells.com and children aged 12 and under are free! Every adult weekend pass includes a $15 voucher to spend at the festival merch booth. Camping and other accommodations available from ArtsWells and other providers throughout Wells and Barkerville. 

Applications are now also open to perform & create at Artswells 2019, simply head here, the applications deadline is midnight on January 31st, 2019.
