Explore. Create. ReImagine.
We’re pleased to bring back – and expand – the ReImagine Art Festival, which began in 2009 with an explosion of mural art in the downtown core.
This year’s festival will take place over two days, September 24 and 25, giving our muralists more time to create, and giving us more time to celebrate and reimagine arts and culture in Penticton. Friday will be highlighted by a performance by Aeriosa Dance Society. But this isn’t just any dance – they will be performing on an exterior wall of the Penticton Lakeside Resort. Dance, reimagined.
Choreographed by Julia Taffe
Dancers: Julia Carr, Meghan Goodman and Keely Sills

Street art festival turns heads
“Barb Haynes, executive-director of the Downtown Penticton Association, said she‘s delighted with the public response to the ReImagine festival. The event was expanded to two days and included more than just street art.
Of particular appeal was the mid-air presentation by the Aeriosa dance troupe from Vancouver, hanging off the roof of the Penticton Lakeside Resort on Friday night. Their three performances drew huge crowds to the hotel‘s patio area.
‘All of the dancers are trained contemporary dancers, horizontally and vertically suspended by ropes on the side of the building. It‘s absolutely amazing to watch.’ Haynes said. ‘We‘ll look forward to bringing them back next year.'”
