Coastal First Nations Dance Festival

The Coastal First Nations Dance Festival returns to MOA from March 2–5, 2017. Produced by the Dancers of Damelahamid in partnership with MOA, the tenth anniversary of this event will showcase the diverse and rich cultural traditions practiced by a selection of some of the best artists from coastal British Columbia, the Yukon, as well as national and international guest artists.
