Sept 1st – Oct 3rd

A full month of Moon Fest-ivities!

Still Moon was pleased to host the 18th Annual Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival in September 2020! 

The festival looked quite different, but we were excited to offer many of our usual events and activities in an altered form.

Thank you for joining us in the creative exploration of the year’s themes: 
Constellations and Transformation.
Over the course of the year, we have been inspired by the ways communities have come together and stayed connected while remaining physically distant during these changing times.

We hope this festival allowed you to safely connect across communities and to reflect on your relationship with the natural world.


Co-produced annually by Still Moon Arts Society and the Renfrew Park Community Association, the Moon Festival celebrates the full moon, the harvest abundance, and diverse cultural traditions. The festival highlights the artistic talents of the Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood and communities beyond, as well as the natural beauty of Still Creek and the Renfrew Ravine, one of the few remaining places in Vancouver with an open stream in a natural forest.

This year, the signature events of the Moon Festival – the Harvest Fair, the Parade, the Streamside Lantern installation, and the Finale – have been adapted and spread out over multiple days (Sept 1st to Sept 27th) to ensure safety and accessibility.
