Mask Magic at Artfest Since 2014
Each year PineRidge Arts Council offers a new arts experience to visitors at Artfest. This year, thanks to the generosity of Enbridge Pipelines Inc., kids of all ages will be able to paint and decorate free wooden masks to take home. The annual popular outdoor event, Artfest on the Esplanade, brings families together at the arts and crafts tables. Parents, grandparents and kids will receive guidance and suggestions from a PRAC teaching artist (if they wish) and create their unique mask to show off and treasure.
