Music, dancing at Surrey Youth Fest

The Surrey Youth Fest returns to Cloverdale Recreation Centre & Youth Park next month.

The Surrey Youth Fest returns to Cloverdale Recreation Centre & Youth Park next month with live entertainment, a break-dance battle, BMX bike demos and more.

The Sept. 19 event is set for 1 to 7 p.m. at the 6188 176 St. park, with a free hop-on shuttle running to and from the city’s nine recreation centres – including that in South Surrey – throughout the day.

Other highlights are to include a hip hop showcase, rock-climbing wall and giveaways, as well as a caricature artist, henna artist, airbrush tattoos and more than 50 youth-focused exhibitors.

There is also a youth dance, from 8-11 p.m., at the Cloverdale Rec Centre, for 13- to 18-year-olds. Registration is required for the dance, along with ID. Call 604-501-5100.

For young musicians wanting to sharpen their performance skills, a ‘Band-Aid Workshop’ has been planned for Sept. 12. The youth-led day of workshops, for those 12 to 22 years old, is to be held at the Surrey Arts Centre, and include sessions with Peak Performance Project founder Bob D’Eith and recording artists Good for Grapes.

For more information or to register, email youth@surrey.ca or call 604-591-4793.
