September downtown festival announced for Red Deer

Meet the Street Arts and Culture Festival to take place Sept 3-5

City of Red Deer has announced a new September downtown festival.

Meet the Street Arts and Culture Festival will take place Sept. 3 to 5 and will feature vendors, artisans, performers, artists and cultural and community groups.

Throughout the summer, mural artists will be creating 15 beautiful pieces in two downtown alleys (alley 49.5 and alley 50.5). Curious locals can check out these artists at work in the area all summer long and the art will remain permanently for all to enjoy.
