What is ARTrageous?

Welcome to ARTrageous 2016: one of Charlotte County, New Brunswick's most popular festivals! It's a celebration of all things related to arts and culture in our community!

The 2016 Kingsbrae Garden Canadian Sculpture Competition also continues; it was from this competition that ARTrageous was born.

ARTrageous is about partnerships and community. Organizations throughout Charlotte County have come together to celebrate the arts and to promote and raise awareness of the talent not only found in our own backyard, but right across the country.

ARTrageous is quite a recipe. It starts with the basic ingredient of the highly acclaimed annual sculpture competition, but will also include a sprinkle of workshops with artists, and a fabulous FREE community concert!

Keep checking the ARTrageous website for updates. Mark your calendars for June 9th-June 12th as Charlotte County gets outrageous over ARTrageous. We have so much artistic talent in our community—let's celebrate it!
