Special Events Announced

At Sled Island, we think all of our events are noteworthy. That said, we do present a series of Special Events for some of the more unique happenings at the festival. This year, highlights include the interactive and revealing NMC Master in Residence: Daniel Lanois, the ambitious rock orchestra piece Band Dialogue IV / Calgary composed by Seth Olinsky (aka Cy Dune), the fascinating Thor Harris on Mental Ilness and Shelter From the Storm, where festival attendees will be inivited to enter the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre to experience its culture through works by its clients, staff, volunteers and more.

Beyond that, we have events from ranging from dance performances to talks and tutorials to parties. We're also dropping in on a few of our favourite weekly local events to add a little Sled Island flavour. Take a look at the full lineup now, and don't forget to grab that pass! A Festival Discovery Pass is the best to experience special events, music, comedy, film, visual art and more.
