Blackfoot Arts and Heritage Festival to be held in Waterton
Parks Canada is pleased to be working with the Blackfoot Canadian Cultural Society to present the Blackfoot Arts & Heritage Festival at the Waterton Community Centre. The event kicks off on Monday August 6 at 7 pm with an opening reception for the visual arts exhibit. On Tuesday August 7 and Wednesday August 8, between 11 am and 2 pm there will be an art show, crafts, storytelling, music, and dance performances. A festival highlight is sure to be the exhibition pow-wow, on Tuesday August 7, with Grand Entry at 4 pm.
This event provides the opportunity to experience and appreciate Blackfoot culture in a park setting, and honours the longstanding relationship between Parks Canada and the Blackfoot people.
