“ We really enjoyed seeing Festival square across the street from us during the summer. It brought a lot of energy back to the downtown, which we’re hoping to carry forward into the Fall and Winter,” said SAAG communications co-ordinator Jeremy Franchuk.


“ We started it last year in the wake of the pandemic. It’s a fundraiser for the SAAG, but it\s also about bringing the community together,” he said.

“We have our annual art auction, but this is a change for people to get together  in a more informal  setting,” he said.



 There will be live music by folk/ roots musician Steven William Foord. Performing musician, poet and teacher Jess Tollestrup loops piano. vocal harmonies, guitar, mouth percussion into  haunting compositions.


 Lolly Willowes is a synth /pop duo featuring Tess Mitchell and Ross Kilgour who create intimate, haunted soundscapes with reverb soaked synth and guitar.


“ It’s also a chance to see our exhibits (Jin-Me Yoon’s “Here Elsewhere Other Hauntings and Jude Griebel ‘s ‘Next World Emissaries’ and Emily Promise  Allison’s Futility Index’) before we take them down ,” he continued.


“ It’s going to be a good time so come on down,” he said.


Admission is $20 for SAAG members $45 for non-members, which includes an annual membership.
