It’s Not Too Early to Start Thinking Sunfest!

It’s Not Too Early to Start Thinking Sunfest!

While the calendar reminds us that it’s still winter in Western New York, there’s no reason we can start thinking about TD Sunfest ’11, “Canada’s premier celebration of world cultures,” held annually in nearby London, Ontario.

TD Sunfest is a must-attend event for thousands of music fans on both sides of the border. But this summer, from July 7-10, London’s acclaimed downtown arts festival set in beautiful Victoria Park is sure to be on even more GPS screens, thanks to its recent selection as a Top 100 North American destination for 2011 by The American Bus Association.

Former NFL Player Brings Performance To Kenan Center

Former NFL Player Brings Performance To Kenan Center

Lockport, NY – Called “One of the most powerful plays of the decade,” by The New York Times, RUNT OF THE LITTER, performed and written by former Houston Oilers safety, Bo Eason, comes to the Kenan Center Taylor Theater on March 8, 7:00 p.m. The performance, which contains adult language and themes, is geared to ages 13 and up. Tickets are $10 with a $1.00 discount for seniors and members.

RUNT OF THE LITTER opens when Eason’s character, Jack Henry, is within an hour of realizing his lifelong dream, and only one thing stands in his way--his brother. RUNT OF THE LITTER looks at what happens to two brothers in a family of over-achievers: when their parents assure their oldest son he is destined for football superstardom, and tell their youngest son he is too small to compete, a line in the family sand is drawn that colors the rest of their lives.

Fringe Will Appeal to WNY’s Festival-Loving Residents

Fringe Will Appeal to WNY’s Festival-Loving Residents

To describe the London (Ontario) Fringe Festival presents a bit of a challenge. Imagine having your choice of 50 different theatre companies from across Canada and around the world. Consider that there are 350 performance times and on stage there will be everything from musicals, comedies, dramas, dance, clowns, magic and shows that defy categories and descriptions. And that’s just for starters!

Now you also need to image over 100 visual artists exhibiting in the art gallery and participating in a one-night contemporary art experience that explodes onto the streets in the downtown core.

This national curling event will host 12 provincial/territorial teams to compete for Canada’s top curling honor, the Brier Tankard!
