Experience the Arts!

Established in 2016, Kaleidoscope has grown and evolved to become a full weekend of Arts, Culture and Music programming. This year, Coquitlam’s free Kaleidoscope Arts Festival returns Aug. 19 to 21 with live, interactive arts and music at three different parks – kicked off Friday night with an outdoor concert by two-time JUNO award winner Dan Mangan.

The City’s seventh annual arts and music festival returns to its original drop-in, in-person format for the first time since 2019, with live music Aug. 19 at Town Centre Park, performances and hands-on experiences Aug. 20 at Blue Mountain Park, and family-focused fun Aug. 21 at Victoria Park.
