Are the performers in SKAMpede any good?
SKAMpede is a festival of new short works by top local and national performers who have been selected through a formal submission process. Each of the shows are different and the range of performances encompasses spoken word, dance, story telling and much more! The local performers have all worked as professional artists in places like Craigdarroch Castle, Atomic Vaudeville, The Belfry Theatre and Butchart Gardens. SKAMartists are paid for their work.
This event sounds big, but I’ve never heard of it?
SKAMpede is now in its tenth year (!!!) and is celebrating this with very special events, such as the Friday Night Feast July 13th from 5-10pm, the Opening Ceremony featuring the Lekwungen Traditional Dancers on Saturday July 14th @ 12noon. We also have a Happy Hour Silent Auction Saturday July 14th @ 5-7pm, and a 10th Birthday Party Sunday July 15th from 12noon – 12:30pm. All events are @ The Hub (360 Harbour Road).
SKAMpede sounds messy, how do you keep the ball rolling?
Like many people who regularly use the Galloping Goose, we also consider ourselves stewards of the trail. We have worked with city and regional officials, community groups, and other professionals to ensure the footprint of the event is ecologically sound.
