In 2018, we held a Bike Art Festival in the Town of Wolfville alongside the Kentville Chalk Art Festival. In Waterfront Park, we had old bike parts, paint, and paper covering the ground, enabling people to engage with the bike parts and create whatever they desired – it was art with no limits. With the two events connected, we promoted the connection that the Harvest Moon Trail brings between Kentville and Wolfville – it’s only a 40 minute bike ride!
The format of the Bike Art Festival sparked creativity in participants who all engaged with the art in different ways. Alongside a BBQ from the Wolfville Lions Club, music from Test of Time, and bikes available to borrow from the Harvest Moon Trail, this event aimed at bringing people together, engaging with bicycles in unique ways, and exploring what the Harvest Moon Trail has to offer.
