Skeleton Park Arts Festival 2016

Thursday, June 23, 2016

The Skeleton Park Arts Festival has officially kicked off with a bang - from live music to an early morning dance party, the city of Kingston is coming alive with high energy on all fronts. The annual festival is one that certainly draws the community together and especially those in the neighbourhood for which it’s named. It is an eclectic mix of friendly folks, vibrant musicians and slew of artisans blossoming into one space for the collective effort of spreading creativity through heritage and culture.

And I for one, am all about it!


This year I look forward to the fabulous line up of events but also sad to think that old ones are forever gone. The dance party in front of the Sleepless Goat is no longer due to their closure this year, it was a place that held memories for many in Kingston. As a foodie, it was my go-to brunch and meeting spot. Though to remedy the situation and celebrate weekend festivities, there will be a wicked after party at The Toucan Pub featuring the prominent band P.S. I Love You originally from Kingston, which of course I will be in attendance.

The one aspect I truly admire about the festival is that it truly brings different generations together and exploring each others passion for the art scene. So much so that the festival has expanded from its original location of McBurney Park also most popularly known as Skeleton Park to other sites around the city. This year has gone far and beyond with events such as live music aqua fitness to early morning yoga classes. Bonus: all free!

As part of the five day of artsy festivities, the weekend is filled with outdoor programming at Skeleton Park from 10am till 9pm from live music, dancing, theatre, workshops, puppet theatre and children’s games. So don't worry, there is fun to be had for all ages - simply get ready to shake to the tunes and admire the scenery as the park sparks with magic.

Be sure to visit my top 5 events I recommend during this year's festival - you don't want to miss out on all the fun!
