Next weekend, Aug. 23 to 25, Deer Crossing the Art Farm, in partnership with Sunshine Coast Credit Union, will host the Synchronicity Festival at Shirley Macey Park in Gibsons.
Far from just another festival, Synchronicity is a bold experiment in community building that gives us all a glimpse into our future today.
The fourth annual Synchronicity Festival will feature the always popular Rainforest Circus (the 2013 “take a chance” version), more jaw-dropping art installations, world-class roaming musicians, delectable local food, a marketplace of social and creative entrepreneurs and a host of new and exciting first-time collaborations including: an art farm-inspired Causeway of Chance, a human-scale board game by Roberts Creek’s The Only Animal Theatre Company and a Saturday night carnivale featuring shadow puppetry by Mind of a Snail Puppet Co. and funk music by Brown Paper Bag to get you dancing under the stars.
“Synchronicity is that moment in time when everything just feels connected,” said artistic director Chad Hershler. “While this feeling can be difficult to capture, the Synchronicity Festival is doing just that. We take the Sunshine Coast’s stunning rainforests and mountains, combine them with our world class artists and acrobats, add cutting edge social entrepreneurs and innovators, toss in a few five star chefs and artisans — and those connections simply start to happen.”
