Fiestaval tomorrow night at Christina Living Arts Centre at Christina Lake

The Christina Lake Arts & Artisans Society will be having its Fiestaval fundraiser at the Christina Living Arts Centre tomorrow night

The Christina Lake Arts & Artisans Society (CLAAS) will be having its Fiestaval fundraiser at the Christina Living Arts Centre tomorrow night (Aug. 8).

This year’s event, which will raise monies for the expansion of the living arts centre, is Spanish/Mexican-inspired and includes an art auction amongst other things.

“This year’s Fiestaval is going to be probably one of the biggest events we’ve had in terms of the quality of the artwork that’s going to be there,” explains Bob Dupee, CLAAS chair. “We’ve got donations from some of the top Canadian and American glass-blowers … they’ve really stepped up to the plate on this one and given us some really beautiful things for the art auction side of things.”

Amongst the other featured events this year will be Zumba dancing and the food will be Mexican-inspired.

“What we’re doing with the funding that we get from this, and we’re hoping to raise enough to do a matching grant to complete our plans for the next phase of our (welcome centre, living arts centre) buildings out there, we’re going to be creating new studio centre and an outside amphitheatre, so we’re trying to raise money for that,” Dupee explains.

Tickets are going fast and are $35 in advance, $40 at the door and are available at both the arts centre at Christina Lake, Wildways and gallery 2 in Grand Forks. Call 250-447-6161 or 250-447-6561 for more.
