Third Shift is an art festival that culminates in a public art event in which Uptown Saint John’s public spaces will be transformed with 18 public art installations, interventions, performances and projections.

Third Space Gallery, which is described on its website as “an artist-run centre for contemporary art in Saint John”  is behind the festival, which runs this year from August 14 thru 16.

As an event for which there is absolutely no charge, and being so accessible with its outdoor setting, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t check out this unique cultural opportunity.  The festival show take place on Friday, August 16, from 7:00 pm until midnight.

It’s the perfect excuse to spend a night in the Uptown!
