One, that we never think we’ve got enough art and culture in our city and downtown – as well-known as our arts scene is, there’s always room for one more show and festival and celebration. Like Big Fun! It’s one of the newest, shiniest events we have to offer, in just its second year! It showcases multiple genres of music and art in venues throughout the city, with a bunch of venues downtown. And they’re not kidding about the multiple genres – check out the lineup page, they describe the bands as everything from “A Newfie ex-patriot takes boozy leadership of a group of musical delinquents” to “As innocent and honest as sprinkle party cake ice cream.” Love!
And two, that we’re willing to host a festival no matter what the weather – we’re not putting our fun on hold just cause it’s a bit chilly out! Big Fun is coming right up this week, from January 24 – 27. Who needs sweaters when you’ve got packed venues full of dancing to keep you warm!
If you want to be part of it, it’s $40 for an all access pass, and there’s all sorts of info on the Big Fun website here!
