Local art scene

You may already know that Red Deer has a vibrant arts scene; and if you’re visiting the city during the early part of February, then you’ll experience the best of the visual, performance, language and literary arts that the city has to offer. This includes the Feline Lair: An Ephemeral Expression of Ice and Snow, a visual showcase of the journey taken by artists tasked with conceiving and creating various rooms in the famous Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden. Dawn Detarando and Brian McArthur are the artists chosen to design and create the Feline Lair Room. View drawings, photographs, small-scale models and descriptions of their snow sculptures from the concept stage to completion. This fascinating exhibition will take place on February 7 at the Culture Services building. 

For the kids

If you’re travelling with the kids in tow, then you’ll want to make your way to the Westerner Park Centrium on February 11 or 12 for PAW Patrol Live!The Great Pirate Adventure. Embark on an adventure with the pups when they set out to rescue Cap'n Turbot from a mystifying cavern and then go on an exciting treasure hunt! The show has it all: music, action, and all-out fun for kids and adults alike.

Irish culture

If you love Irish music, you won't want to miss acclaimed artist Sharon Shannon and her band when they make their way to Red Deer. Shannon is an award winning musician, blending traditional Irish music with a contemporary flair, and has worked with members of U2 and The Waterboys.
