Established in 2016, Kaleidoscope has grown and evolved to become a full weekend of Arts, Culture and Music programming. Coquitlam’s eighth annual arts festival offers residents and visitors a captivating arts and culture experience, with free admission, award-winning musicians, dance performances, Indigenous and cultural education, workshops, kids activities and more.
We acknowledge with gratitude and respect that the name Coquitlam was derived from the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ word kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (kwee-kwuh-tlum) meaning “Red Fish Up the River”. The City is honoured to be located on the kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem) traditional and ancestral lands, including those parts that were historically shared with the sq̓əc̓iy̓aɁɬ təməxʷ (Katzie), and other Coast Salish Peoples.
Thank you to everyone who attended and helped support the 2023 Kaleidoscope Arts Festival!
