The Esquimalt Arts Festival returns to Memorial Park this weekend (Aug. 19) for a day-long gathering in celebration of local artists.
The family-friendly free event hosted by the Township Community Arts Council promises something for everyone with an artist’s walk, food vendors and live music from Rig a Jig, Carolina Bluebirds, Crimson Sky and Lorraine Nygaard.
