Looking for Volunteers to Help Plan MetamorFest

MetamorFest

The Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, 800 East Broadway, is looking to expand their annual fall street festival MetamorFest. They are looking to rebrand this event as a community-driven festival focused on the whole of Broadway East and to include the transformations happening in this neighbourhood. This year, MetamorFest will take place on three “off Broadway” locations and they are looking for volunteers to help plan the program.  Western Front continues to be their key partner in this fall festival, and they are working with several other potential partners. They would like to make this festival a signature annual event that will continue to highlight the assets along the Broadway East corridor between Prince Albert and Prince Edward. If you wish to participate in the planning of this event, contact Allen Smith at Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood, T: 604 879 8208 or E: asmith@mpnh.org.
