Choose Yer Own Festival!
CHOOSE YER OWN
The Summerwood Warren presents a collaborative festival!
August 7th- 11th, 2008
All Ages Shows, Bicycle Parades, Robot Battles, and Breakfast with the Landlord!!
(among other things)
Happening throughout Calgary from august 7th to 11th, Choose Yer Own is a collaborative attempt to create a festival that is accessible and super awesome, with the idea that everyone chooses the shape and nature of their own involvement. festival events were determined by an open call for submissions, and include everything from a bicycle obstacle course and an island beach party, to interesting musical performances and DJs with Lemonade. Contributions come from many talented and interesting enthusiasts, including many local loved ones. The festival will also feature a performance by krecs' O Paon (formerly Woelve) hailing from Anacortes, Washington. Check www.summerwoodwarren.com for details. The full schedule and map go up on monday.
The festival is based on the idea that "you choose the level of your own involvement", and also around the concept of a "choose your own adventure" book, thus trying to remain open and adventuresome on all levels, and ultimately being shaped by the community itself. It is also committed to making events accessible and sustainably inclined. The festival embraces the idea of "bike-ability", with sponsorship and workshops from the Good Life community bike shop, and guided bike convoys between destinations.
The festival is mostly free and all ages. Thank you to The Good Life, CJSW, EMMEDIA, the Arusha Center, and Beatroute for their support and sponsorship.
