Posted by Sara MacLennan on Thursday, September 11th, 2014 at 8:56pm.

Living in Edmonton, Alberta provides a wealth of exciting attractions and things to do that add fun and frivolity to a busy schedule. One such event is that of Kaleidofest, an arts festival filled to the brim with fun for the entire family. This three-day festival is scheduled to take place from September 12-14 of this year, and will include a large variety of enticing activities for everyone to enjoy. Here's a brief look at all that this year’s Kaleidofest will entail.

Activities and Features of Kaleido: Activities and Performances Abound

While Edmonton plays host to a plethora of events each year, Kaleidofest is one of the very best in delivering a family-friendly atmosphere, while also providing a number of interesting festivities for adults to partake in as well. No matter what type of performance arts you happen to be looking for, it's likely to be on display during the festival. The street corners of 118th Avenue will be lined with all sorts of activities, including visual arts, music, theatre, film and much more. Each of these shows are designed to last anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours.

A connection to the arts and the local artists that bring their works to life is one of the best aspects of living in Edmonton, and this year's festival aims to provide this in spades. The 8th annual Kaleidofest is one of the four primary events sponsored by Arts on the Ave, the other three being Deep Freeze: Winter Byzantine Festival, Social Art Experiences and The Carrot Community Arts Coffeehouse. It is during this festival that musicians, photographers and artists of all kinds display their greatest works for visitors from all around the area, particularly those living in Edmonton. You’ll get to step out and see just what your talented neighbours are capable of creating at this fun festival.

Anyone that takes the time to visit this festival will notice immediately that much of the 118th Avenue district has been completely transformed in the anticipation of this event, as the buildings, parks and everything in between is set to be redesigned and decorated to match the artistic performances that will be happening. Musical performances will even be taking place on the rooftops of the local shops throughout the area during the three-day event. These musical performances will encompass a wide range of styles, from lively Soul and R&B performances to quaint folk tunes.

Location/Pricing Details for the Event

The focal point of the Kaleidofest, or Kaleido Family Arts Festival, is 118th Avenue and the surrounding areas, which is located in the downtown area of Edmonton between NAIT and the Northlands. One of the best aspects of the entire festival is the fact that most of the performances are entirely free. Whether looking for a fun distraction from a busy day or the opportunity to provide an unforgettable experience for the whole family, Kaleidofest has set up a huge variety of performances to satisfy any taste.
