Thank you to all of our exhibitors, food vendors, musicians, performers, volunteers, sponsors, partners, City of Langley and more for another super successful art festival. A special thanks goes out to our community of art and music lovers, visitors and locals, alike. The weather was a plus, too.
We always encourage participation on an organizational level, and we would love to have your input and effort. To get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mark your calendars for July 6-7, 2013. See you in Langley for another fun weekend.
There’s usually not a spot to be found on the streets of Langley during the festival. That’s why we provide a free shuttle throughout town. Park at the lot at Sixth and Cascade or at one of the many non-profit lots and simply wait for the shuttle that runs continuously from the ferry and up through Langley.
What is Choochokam without henna? That’s what we thought.
Krysteen Lomonaco joined the Choochokam fun in the 11th hour last night, so head down to the festival for some henna fun. New maps will be available at the show. She’s located in the newly-added booth, B22.
If you’d like the festival schedule maps, etc. for 2012 please click on the navigation bar above that lists schedules. Also the lineup and stage schedules are posted under the entertainment and schedules navigation button.
We understand the site has been frustrating at times for some of you, which has been noted. The site is due to be spruced up after this year’s festival. If anyone would like to join our team to help with web updates, we’ll gladly welcome you. Our team of six is working as hard as we can to make this festival as enjoyable and fun for everyone!
Cheers! See you in a few days! Sherry, co-director
