Where: Deep Freeze: A Byzantine Winter Festival is always a lot of fun and a perfect opportunity to capture Edmonton shenanigans with our sketches. A free festival that runs primarily along 118 Avenue between 90-95 streets, it celebrates Ukrainian, Indigenous, and French cultures in art, music, dance, stories, ice carvings, food, and more. It spans two days from noon to 6:00 with some activities going on to 10:00 pm on Saturday. The scope of the festivities in terms of performance schedules and locations is huge.
When: Saturday January 21 from 12pm to 2pm. For those wishing to meet together at the beginning, this urban sketching event will officially begin at noon at the main doors of the Alberta Avenue Community Centre and finish up at the same place. Can someone take a group photo for our FB group? However, you may decide to come later in the day or on Sunday to see specific performances and sketch at different times.
