The Castlegar Youth Council’s Youth Arts and Talent event will be held Sunday, July 12 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Selkirk College. The event will feature young musicians, speakers and artists.

The event will include food, kids games, face painting, door prizes, a silent auction and more.

Yannive from Supercat Studio will be the Dj in the Selkirk College pit, where the talent contest will be taking place. Art will be exhibited in the courtyard where the kids games and a hula hoop workshop will be taking place as well.

The event was originally planned for Kinsmen Park on May 30, but had to be cancelled due to an electrical storm. According to Youth Council coordinator  Zoe MacKay, “The event is going to be shorter, but wonderful none the less. I really cannot say enough about the support I have received from the community and media in my planning efforts despite the fact that a surprise electrical storm warning and subsequent safety risk deemed the cancelation of our first event.”

 

If you are a teen (ages 12-19) with talent and would like to participate contact Zoe MacKay at Castlegar and District Community Services Society (250)365-2104 ext. 25.
