Alt-country darlings Blue Rodeo are a gem from the Great White North. They have never let up since they released
that unparallelled classic in “Try.” “Diamond Mine” was a stellar hit which kept them on the same trajectory.
“Lost Together” was hauntingly beautiful. Their music resonates with all age groups as it is both warm and contemplative. Vocalists Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor are two of the best Canada ever produced.

MOCCA presents “Over the Rainbow: Seduction and Identity”, in partnership with WorldPride 2014, an exhibition acknowledging many of the familiar archetypes associated with queer culture – sexuality, camp, celebrity, rainbows. The exhibition looks beyond these to examine reciprocal ways that gay and mainstream representation have influenced each other, and in doing so have contributed to shaping aspects of our culture and identities over the last several decades. Artworks from “Over the Rainbow” are drawn from the collection of Salah Bachir and Jacob Yerex.
Featured artists include Stephen Andrews, Attila Richard Lukacs, Public Studio, Justine Kurland, Betty Goodwin, General Idea, Andy Fabo, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Annie Leibowitz, Herb Ritts and many more.
This year’s festival dips into food and culture rooted in the past and renewed for the future. Enjoy a range of culinary delicacies, as well as hot rhythms and spicy grooves from the past and present.
