Get Involved

RespectFEST is a true community event and we want you to get involved!

How can you get involved?

  • Check out the Events Calendar and decide which FREE events to participate in during the week of September 18-24, 2017
  • Participate in one of the 15 FREE Public Art Workshops and help local artist, Gabrielle Strong, leave a lasting legacy in Downtown Vernon
  • Make sure everyone is well-fed by applying to be a food vendor for the Multicultural Festival

All RespectFEST events and activities are being designed to call attention to the Respect theme: respecting our land and environment, honouring our indigenous history and roots, understanding our multicultural history, and recognizing the strengths that diversity brings to our community.

 Please email respect@downtownvernon.com if you would like to get involved in another capacity!
