The Vermilion Culture Fest or V-Fest takes over at the Vermilion Curling Rink on Sep. 23-24.
Brad Gallamore with Lloydminster Vermilion for Equity is dishing the details on the food and cultural entertainment.
“We got the Mariachi Project, an Indigenous rapper, an Indigenous storyteller/comedian, Chinese sunshine dancers, classical Indian dancing, lots of food, and an indoor market with over 20 different vendors.”
On Saturday the event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. Gallamore says singing talent Rafi Jag will be on the stage at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.
“We are going to have international Rafi Jag performing. Soon, he’s going to be way too famous for us – so if you get a chance to come see him.”
Jag who has Lloydminster roots will be a headliner at the event, but is already developing a busy cross-Canada and international schedule.
The third V-Fest coincides with Alberta’s Culture Days.
