18th Annual Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival | Kids Out and About Vancouver

18th Annual Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival


*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 09/27/2020
Still Moon Arts Society is excited to announce that the 18th Annual Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival will be taking place this September! The festival will look quite different this year, but we are excited to offer many of our usual events and activities in an altered form throughout the month. We invite you to join us in creative exploration of this year’s themes: Constellations and Transformation. Over the course of the year, we have been inspired by the ways communities have come together and stayed connected while remaining physically distant during these changing times. We hope our festival will allow you to safely connect across communities and to reflect on your relationship with the natural world.
This year, the signature events of the Moon Festival - the Harvest Fair, the Parade, the Streamside Lantern installation, and the Finale - have been adapted and spread out over multiple days (Sept 1st to Sept 27th) to ensure safety and accessibility. All in-person events require pre-registration, which can be found on our website. For those who are unable to attend in person, many events will be available online via live stream and video. Please visit our event calendar for a complete list of activities this fall.
 
ABOUT THE MOON FESTIVAL:
This event is held as part of Still Moon Arts Society’s 18th Annual Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival, celebrating the full moon, the harvest abundance, and diverse cultural traditions. The festival highlights the artistic talents of the Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood and communities beyond, as well as the natural beauty of Still Creek and the Renfrew Ravine, one of the few remaining places in Vancouver with an open stream in a natural forest.
