Look out Vernon, a riot is about to break out.
Riot on the Roof is the alternative art party of the summer, and it's coming soon.
On Aug. 24, the Vernon Parkade will be transformed into a venue for emerging artists to showcase their work during a night of live music, food trucks, art installations, dance performances and more.
“This annual event is the only one of its kind in the North Okanagan and is a highly anticipated evening for teens and young adults in our community. As well as being an affordable way for the community to listen, view and enjoy local alternative arts and culture, Riot on the Roof, provides an opportunity for young emerging artists to demonstrate their craft to a larger audience,” says Dauna Kennedy, executive director.
Each level of the parkade hosts an array of talent, showcasing art in all its forms.
This year, J. Solemn & The Rocky Mountain Wildflowers will be playing on the main stage, and Romi Kim will be the event’s emcee. Riot on the Roof brings artists, musicians, comedians and more together to make an awesome night of entertainment.
The riot runs from 7 to 11 p.m.
Tickets are $10 and are available online or at the Vernon Public Art Gallery, 3228 31st Ave.
