Festival Place Cultural Arts Foundation

Festival Place Cultural Arts Foundation is the heart of art support in Strathcona County! Our members have their collective fingers on the pulse of art support from fundraising through fun events such as the Black & White, the Festival of Trees, and In the Spirit to providing funding for young performing and visual artists via grants and scholarships.

Our Objectives:
