Start your summer off right at Central City! The long days of summer are the ideal time to kick-start your kids’ creativity Art Jam presents The Beach Club, Central City’s hub for all things crafty.

Summer days can be long and hot, and not everyone loves basking in the sunlight for hours. Central City offers an inexpensive indoor (and air-conditioned) space where your kids can take part in fun crafts and activities. In partnership with the Surrey Arts Council, ArtJam provides specially designed craft opportunities free of charge. From July 4-13, drop into Central City (near the Starbucks) between 11am-3pm to make a unique summer-inspired craft and take it home to show your family and friends. A new craft will be available each day, so you can pop by repeatedly or tie in some time for the kids while running your errands. Snap a photo of your child and their stunning artwork next to the Celebration of Colour mural by artist Sandeep Johal conveniently located near the children’s play area and Winners. Or photograph your budding artist sitting on the beautifully painted stairs by Semiahmoo First Nation artist Leslie Wells.

What’s better than free daily arts and crafts? To wrap up Art Jam presents The Beach Club, head to Central City on July 13th for an extra-special holiday event. No one ever said Christmas has to stay in December! At Christmas in July, visitors will get into the holiday spirit with some fun themed crafts and activities, and have a chance to visit with jolly ol’ Santa himself from 12pm-1pm. Get your Summer Santa photo and Christmas wish lists in early this year!

The fun never ends at Central City! In addition to The Beach Club crafts and activities, families will love catching some live music at the Sounds of Summer concerts every weekday from 12pm-2pm in the Plaza. Running until the end of August, make a day out of it and grab lunch in the food court before wrapping up your shopping and errands. Then, head out to the Plaza where you can sway, sing, and dance your way through music from local artists as you enjoy your lunch and take a break from your busy day.
