Iskoteo Arts Festival - Busy Week In GP!

Grande Prairie has an amazing week ahead of it! Seriously, tell me the list of events isn't impressive - I dare you!

In all seriousness this is going to be a great week that features the diversity of our community and hopefully will open some people's eyes to the thriving arts and cultural scene in Grande Prairie. The Iskoteo Arts Festival is a combination of new and annual events coordinated to coincide with the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards. Most of the events are free and those that do have a fee attached are supporting good causes. If you're not from GP, there's still time for you to plan a visit!
