Coquitlam is a city on the edge of the wilderness in Metro Vancouver. It has world-class shopping and cultural programming all accessible by SkyTrain, along with hiking, fishing, cycling, and more. It’s the perfect rendezvous point for events and festivals for the local community and audiences from all over the region.
My favourite moment at Kaleidoscope (Arts Festival) was just after sunset, during headliner Bif Naked’s performance. That’s when I saw little kids, seniors, teens and families all get up to dance together. It reflected the diversity of Coquitlam – and all the fun everyone can have here!
