#ygkChallenge: Celebrate The Arts

Skeleton Park Arts Festival, Kingston Jazz Festival, Kingston, OntarioWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Make plans to enjoy The Skeleton Park Arts Festival! Yesterday we told you all about The Skeleton Park Arts Festival. Now in in 9th year, the festival has teamed up with the Kingston Jazz Festival and has expanded to cover the span of a full week of arts events in downtown Kingston.  From film and theatre to live music and visual art, this celebration of the arts has something for everyone.  The best part: most of it is free!  After what has seemed like endless rain, the weather is looking great for this weekend so grab your lawn chairs and head over to McBurney Park on Saturday for a full day of music, dancing, food and fun for the whole family.  Check out our guide to find out what else is happening throughout the week.  See you there!
