Nooks & Crannies is a festival where artists create temporary site-specific installations in downtown Okotoks. This art festival sees artists repurpose and animate forgotten places with recycled materials, bringing public art to forgotten corners of downtown Okotoks. Individual artists and teams use recycled products to create installations that raise environmental awareness, animate spaces, and entertain audiences.
The inaugural Nooks & Crannies Festival in 2019 featured 10 artists from Okotoks and Calgary who used repurposed materials to liven up eight hidden corners of downtown, in partnership with 12 Okotoks businesses, raising awareness about recycling and the environment.
Presented alongside BuskersFest, the 2nd annual Nooks & Crannies Festival opens on June 27, 2020 with the art installations animating downtown through the Taste of Okotoks on July 18, 2020
