Found Festival

Found Festival

Have a pitch for Found Fest, but missed the application deadline? CGAS will continue to accept Found Festival applications until programming is satisfied. Please email Artistic Producer Beth Dart for details.

Found is a unique and innovative showcase of dance, theatre, visual art, music, creative writing and many other disciplines that transforms unconventional places into unique arts spaces. In the past we have produced theatre in a grocery store, dance among park trees, a radio play on the High Level Bridge, an art installation in a storefront window, and more! Bursting with creativity and energy, Found Festival transports the arts out of theatres, galleries, and stages and directly into the heart of the city, which allows audiences to experience visual and performing arts in ways they have never before — right in their own neighbourhood!

The Found Festival Main Grounds is located in the bustling centre of Old Strathcona at Dr. Wilbert McIntyre Park (83 Ave & 104 street next to Whyte Avenue and the Old Strathcona Farmer’s Market). Throughout the festival weekend, the Found Festival Main Grounds presents numerous outdoor events that are free to the public. This includes the Found Festival Music Series that features exciting local bands, activities for youth, buskers, food vendors, a licensed liquor gardens, interactive arts and craft stations, an outdoor film screening, and much more!
