Come take part in a full day of self-care.

On Saturday September 8th come join Passion for Impact, a volunteer group, and learn different ways to practice self-care and treat yourself to a you-day. There will be demonstrations covered throughout the day from experts in Indian head massages, meditation, nutrition and cleansing, low waste living, mediumship, energy work and embracing your own spiritual gifts.
Tickets to the event are $35 with all proceeds going towards providing a home for an impoverished family in the Dominican Republic.

There will be interactive wagon rides and the annual scarecrow contest for kids to come dressed up as a scarecrow for a chance to win great prizes! Plus there will be a Potato sack race, three-legged race, corn maze fun, and great live music with Alan Sonier. Come play in our field and check out the awesome hay bale creations.
The main stage of Confederation Centre will come alive with a dazzling array of world class music, dance, incredible performance art and visual art from around the globe. Together with local household names, internationally recognized artists will perform in this new festival dedicated to human connections and cultural dialogue.
This event offers an opportunity of reflection about a world in constant change. In seeming contrasts, the ageless beauty of Prince Edward Island inspires its visitors with a sense of belonging and community. Island artists are extending a warm welcome to the cultural pilgrims and ambassadors from all around the globe and together they will share their art with us- the audience. By learning and appreciating different manifestations of human intellectual achievement we do realize we are more alike than we are different. This September, Prince Edward Island becomes a truly global village.
Cool Moon commences in mid-September with “Objects of the Mind” Chinese brush and ink paintings by Dianyu Zhao, a highly regarded artist at the Chinese national level who specializes in painting nature, particularly flowers and birds. He is known as a student of « Qi’s Lineage » under the son of Baishi Qi, who is one of the two most famous painters in modern Chinese art history. This exhibition, presented in the Fred S. and Ogden Martin Concourse Gallery, is collaboration between the Great Enlightenment Buddhist Institute Society (GEBIS) and the Confederation Centre Art Gallery.
Pop-up entertainment featuring a local and visiting artists will be happening through the last week of September across the province preceding two stellar shows in Charlottetown at the Confederation Centre of the Arts.
On Saturday the 29th of September at 7pm the curtain will rise on the Homburg stage for the Cool Moon Invitational Gala. This cultural arts exchange will feature over 40 artists performing music, dance, and Chinese opera’s face-changing magic, an accredited UNESCO intangible heritage! There will be a special guest performance by Karine Ste-Marie whose songs will include her recent hit “Charlottetown” sung in both French and English.
The grand highlight of the Cool Moon Festival is a Sunday September 30th matinee with a world-class drama titled “Shangri-La”, an infusion of western modern dance with Tibetan traditional dancing by the award-winning Wanma Jiancuo Dance Company from Beijing. Special guest Lennie Gallant will open the show with several songs off his new Time Travel album plus a memorable return to Searching for Abegweit featuring indigenous dancers.
