14th annual Keep the Beat Saturday at Lakeside Park
Keep the Beat returns for its 14th annual year this Saturday, August 26th, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Rotary Lakeside Park in Nelson.
This year, Keep the Beat, a festival full of music, fun, and dancing, features twelve amazing arts, including names such as Peach Pit, Hello Moth, and Adam Shaikh, among others.
Keep the Beat is a fundraiser for War Child Canada.
War Child is an international non-profit humanitarian organization whose mission is to help children in war affected communities reclaim their childhood through access to education, opportunity, and justice.
All proceeds from Keep the Beat go directly to War Child Canada’s many initiatives in countries including Uganda, Afghanistan, South Sudan, and Jordan, raising funds through personal donations, a silent auction, grants, and pledges. Along with raising over $150 000 since it began, Keep the Beat also provides positive community growth and student volunteer opportunities, all while bringing the city together for a day of music, dancing and family fun!
