Fraser Lake Festival of the Arts

Wow, I can’t believe our little town of Fraser Lake has been able to pull off three successful art festivals in a row!

Congratulations to the Fraser Lake Arts Council, the Festival Committee, the Village of Fraser Lake and all the volunteers who worked so hard to make this event a success.

Of course there could not have been a festival without the many visual, performing, and other creative artists who displayed their talents, both inside the arena venue and outside. And we especially appreciated those that presented workshops and demonstrations for both children and adults. We wanted the festival to be a learning experience as well as an inspiration to others.

There is something about the artistic expression that lifts the spirits. And when there is music and poetry in the air it’s especially pleasant!

We are grateful to the organizations that have funded our festivals during past years such as the Nechako Kitimat Development Fund, the Regional District, as well as our corporate sponsors.

Please stay tuned for the 2018 Fraser Lake Festival of the Arts which will be on the weekend of August 11th, 2018. The festival usually begins with a musical/dining event the previous evening at the Legion (Friday, Aug.10th)

The Fraser Lake Festival of the Arts occurs annually on the weekend following the BC Day holiday weekend.

Doris Ray resides in Fraser Lake in North Central B.C. Her first creative effort, a humour column titled “Sense and Nonsense,” began appearing in local newspapers in 1974. It was followed by “The Good Old Days,” compiled from interviews with area pioneers. Later she helped develop and publish a local history book, “Deeper Roots and Greener Valleys.” In 1999 Doris's award winning book “The Ghosts Behind Him” chronicling her family’s devastating experiences with her son Bruce’s schizophrenia, was published by Caitlin Press. Her recent novel "Common Threads," loosely based upon the secretive life of her grandmother who married a man from China, was published by Libros Libertad. Doris has self-published several volumes of poetry and short fiction. She has facilitated creative writing workshops and family-education programs on the subject of mental illness. Recently she has developed a computerized slide-show presentation featuring archival and other historical photographs relevant to her latest book publication. The slide show - in conjunction with short readings and audience interaction – generally focuses on a number of historical events and social aspects outlined in the book.
