Something for everyone

From beautiful lakeside parks to stunning theatrical performances to world-famous music festivals, there's something for everyone in the region.

Nelson has more heritage buildings per capita than any other region of BC. One famous building, Touchstones Nelson Art and History Museum, built in 1902 and transformed in 2006, is a state-of-the-art centre. It hosts both a permanent installation capturing the history of the region and constantly changing art exhibits.

Meanwhile, Kaslo has the newly renovated Langham Cultural Centre, showcasing all forms of art from paintings to live performances.

Our communities love to share our beauty, heritage and culture with visitors—there's a reason Nelson is the Number One Small Arts Town in Canada. Come visit our parks, browse the picturesque main streets of Nelson and Kaslo, or visit the artisans living and working along the waterfront in Balfour.

The region also has a vibrant arts scene. Nelson boasts regular theatre performances at the Capitol Theatre, or a mix of eclectic and blockbuster movies at the restored Civic Theatre.
