Langley gears up for Choochokam

Choochokam, Langley’s annual Festival of the Arts, follows on the heels of Independence Day celebrations this year. It will be held Saturday and Sunday, July 6 and July 7.

As always, the 38th annual edition of Choochokam will fill downtown with tents and tables with juried arts and crafts items for sale, along with music on the First Street stage, children’s activities and the popular food concessions on Anthes Street. The list of artists with booths boasts more than 70 entries as the big weekend draws near. See the entire lineup at
