Rubaboo Arts Festival
RUBABOO is the only Aboriginal arts festival in Alberta and we passionately look to its development. It is gaining momentum every year establishing a strong presence as an emerging arts festival that challenges cultural expectations, promotes and encourages cultural sharing and understanding. Rubaboo is recognized as a Métis-Michif language word, meaning a stew or soup trappers use to make on the trap line. Rubaboo is a philosophy about what sustains us; it’s about feeding the spirit, about thriving; a rich dish filled with all good things, thus the Rubaboo Arts Festival. It is a multi‐disciplinary arts festival, showcasing Aboriginal theatre, music, dance, art, food, family and youth events, artist workshops, cultural workshops and Aboriginal crafts. It has a mandate to develop new artistic works and present these works in progress during the festival.
