Ignite the Arts is a ten day celebration of art and culture separated into two parts: Community Week, and Festival Weekend!

Kicking off on Friday, March 24, 2023 and running through to Sunday, April 2, 2023, key events include the unveiling of the Penticton Art Gallery’s Mini Mural project in partnership with Cannery Brewing, Lake to Lake Art Walk in partnership with PDCAC, Artist Talks, Confluence Conference in partnership with En’owkin Centre, UNBOX Project in partnership with SOICS, Creative Kids Art Camps, Children and Youth Song Writing Camp in partnership with PAMDA , Art Installations, Parade for No Reason, and a THREE DAY, MULTI-VENUE, MUSIC FESTIVAL!

The second weekend is when the streets come alive with music! The Weekend of March 31st to April 2nd will feature our ticketed event day stages. A wide range of live performances, workshops and activities throughout the downtown core, taking advantage of existing indoor spaces featuring two full days of programming spread around town from noon until 10 pm, culminating at a single venue to end off each day from 10:00-1:00 am.

The festival offers a wide range of community programming including free events, workshops and educational programs. Each location will feature revolving musical acts, with each talent preforming two times over the course of the weekend to guarantee you will have the chance to see all you favourites.
