Kaleidoscope Fest 2016 shines light on North Vancouver

Aug 24 2016, 11:35 pm

Canada’s first ever 3D light and art festival, Kaleidoscope Fest, will transform Lonsdale Quay into a magical outdoor art gallery in September.

Kaleidoscope Fest 2016 will take place in Lower Lonsdale, centred around the Shipyards, from Friday, September 2 to Sunday, September 4.

Aiming to shed a light on mental health issues, the festival will include 3D projection mapping onto the Burrard Dry Dock building, light art sculptures, and live music.

Plus, Blanche Macdonald makeup artists will be transforming models into theatrical full body living exhibits, to reflect their own thoughts on mental health.

There will also be an interactive area with a graffiti wall, where festivalgoers can design their own images, and food trucks parked all along Wallace Mews Archway.

Meanwhile, a VIP iLED Lounge full of stunning contemporary LED furniture will welcome guests with a complimentary drink and snacks.

All proceeds from the festival will benefit the Lions Gate Hospital HOpe Centre to support the provision of mental health care in Vancouver.

Entry is totally free. VIP tickets are available now for $79.
