Be There, Sponsor/Donate or Volunteer
Great ways to get involved with our festival – you can simply be there to enjoy the dance, music, poetry, visual arts or you can take a more active role by becoming a part of the team as a volunteer. Another way to feel involved and ensure the continued success of our festival is to become a festival sponsor or support the festival with a donation. We are the largest Aboriginal Arts Festival in Alberta. Tickets and All Access Passes go on sale at the Box Office on Opening Night. CASH ONLY Be There
If you are interested in being a corporate sponsor of our event, please contact our office for more information at 780-378-9609 or email ababoriginalarts.gmail.com. In addition, as partners with the Dreamspeakers Festival Society, we are a registered charity (Tax ID 132950791RP0001). We are only able to issue Charitable Tax Receipts for amounts of $50 or more. Any contributions to our organization are gratefully accepted. You can send them in by mail or drop off a donation at our Box Office during the festival. Sponsor/Donate
