Riot on the Roof

Thank you for making our 10th Riot a success!

This year, the Vernon Public Art Gallery is celebrated a decade of Riot on the Roof. Riot on the Roof was created to fill a need in our community; we needed to create an event that provided accessible cultural experiences to the public, as well as provide a venue for emerging and established artists to perform and exhibit. On Saturday, August 25, 2018, the Downtown Vernon Parkade was transformed into an alternative art party, with live music, performance and installation art, dance, and comedy.

Artists included this year were Matt Glen, Skylah Ginette, Andrew Judah, Squids, Cody Rueger, Kailee McGuire, Randy Jerni, Kin Folk, The Poetry Elf, Knupunk, Thomas McIsaac, Ginger Snapp, Heidi Smith, and many more. Don’t worry about dinner, because there will be food vendors and drinks available!

Riot on the Roof brings together a variety of artists in one unique venue for one awesome night. Each level hosts an array of talent, showcasing art in all its forms. For more information please contact
