Arts on the Ave is proud to present the 12th annual Deep Freeze: A Byzantine Winter Festival featuring Winter Tales.
The Deep Freeze Byzantine Winter Festival is a free family event that brings together Ukrainian, Franco-Albertan, Franco-African, Indigenous, and Acadian/East Coast communities to revel in the magic and beauty of winter. Come embrace our cold northern climate by melding artistic panache with authentic cultural and heritage winter games!
This year, Saturday will be Ukrainian Cultural Day and Sunday will be Francophone Cultural Day, with Indigenous performances all weekend long. After the fireworks on Saturday evening, several Festival Stages will feature special WORLD MUSIC performances until 10 pm.
Free Admission, donations gratefully accepted.
