Okotoks’ Nooks & Crannies Festival

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 ‚Äėforgotten‚Äô 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.

Artists may submit up to a maximum of 1 piece for the festival and there is no fee to submit. Selected artists receive $250 for participating and have the opportunity to receive an additional $100 if their piece is selected as a winner through public voting in three different categories. Please note that all submissions will be acknowledged upon receipt but only selected artists will be notified of acceptance by the specified date.

Submissions Are Open
The 5th annual Nooks & Crannies Festival is now accepting artist submissions! Submissions must be received no later than Monday, May 1, 2023. Learn more and apply at www.okotoks.ca/nooks.
