July 15, August 12, September 9, locations TBA,

Arts Day on Parks Day
For the first time ever, Keji is pairing Parks Day with Art Day—an excuse to channel the inspiration that surrounds campers, canoers and hikers. Unleash your creativity outdoors, with local musicians, artist and storytellers.
July 16, Kejimkujik National Park, 3005 Main Parkway, Maitland Bride,

White Rabbit Arts Festival
Red Clay Farm isn't a bad place to land after you've fallen down the rabbit hole. Celebrating the landscape and art, White Rabbit invites you to wind through the woods and find sculpture, performance and dance parties. Bring your camping gear!
August 20-21, Red Clay Farm, 4715 route #2, Upper Economy,

Make Do Camp
Focusing is the hardest thing ever when you've got deadlines, push notifications and life all up in your grill. Make.Do.Camp wants to nurture and spark your creativity by hosting a four-day idea incubator (AKA adult summer camp) with workshops from various experts, and without phones, computers or wobbly pops.
September 2-5, Big Cove Camp, Pictou,
