The event aims to highlight the area’s music, food, visual art, and other creative scenes. From a local lineup of musicians, to a video game demo by new developers, Raiseberry taps into the rich creativity currently blossoming throughout these communities. It will also feature a live painting session and a selection of poetry by local writers.

Red Press Society was formed in the fall of 2016 for precisely this purpose. As a non-profit society made up of local creators, it is important to the society that the wide reaching talents of local artists have a place to present their work.

Red Press’ objective is to publish the monthly magazine Raspberry—a consistent, high-quality publication for Fraser Valley artists to share their work. It publishes
reviews, event coverage, and feature articles on what shapes the everyday life and cultural experience of Valley residents. It also publishes original art and writing by local emerging creators. Raspberry digs its fingers into the rich cultural earth right here in the Fraser Valley.

All funds raised at Raiseberry contribute to this goal, specifically through print publication of the magazine and further cultural events.

Above all, Raiseberry and the folks behind Raspberry and the Red Press Society want to celebrate the creative spirit of this community through a fun and diverse gala.
 

There will be a silent auction featuring packages by local vendors as well as local food and beverage options!
