What is RiverFestYYC?
RiverFestYYC is a “festival in the making” celebrating the Rivers that run through our city.
The 2022 version comes in the form of a River walk beginning at the Confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers continuing across the George C. King pedestrian bridge to St Patrick’s Island and following the pathway East along the Bow to Confluence Plaza (near the CPA Calgary Zoo - West parking lot).
There are 5 stops along the way where participants will encounter RiverFestYYC sandwich board signs*.
Each of these stops has a descriptive sign with QR codes that can be scanned to discover stories, artwork, information and a map. The stories and artwork created for this River walk are “site specific”, meaning each artist was inspired in some way by their stop location.
