One of the highlight performers at the Coast Capital TeenFest this weekend is 12-year-old Shon Burnett

Cloverdale’s TeenFest packed full of talent

Jan. 31st event at Agriplex showcases skills and connects youth to community

There will be no shortage of things to do at this weekend’s Coast Capital TeenFest, but the entertainment promises to be a highlight.

Running from 11 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on Saturday (Jan. 31) at the Cloverdale Agriplex, the one-day TeenFest aims to connect teens and their families to their communities.

Included in the festivities are more than 80 booths, an indoor skate park, fashion and beauty displays, and entertainment – highlighted by Shon Burnett, all-girl band Arium and Ria Jade.

Burnett, 12, is a top-six finalist from YTV’s The Next Star 7, and has also made appearances on televised talent shows in Thailand, where he lived when he was 10 years old.

Arium, meanwhile, is an all-girl teen band from Surrey that puts a modern twist on a wide range of music, and is sure to be a popular draw.

Jade, 17, is a pop/rock singer-songwriter who also hosts her own show, eveRIAthing, on Shaw.

She performed at last year’s TeenFest event, and returns to the stage again Saturday for another performance.
