Golden Events

Golden events throughout the year reflect the deep passion of its people for life itself and for their community. Being situated in the heart of three mountain ranges and at the place where the Columbia and the the Kicking Horse Rivers come together, Golden offers a myriad of world-class outdoor events in every season to enthusiasts from around the world.

Golden events do not stop there, however. The town has a lively arts and culture community as well. The Golden District Arts Council, known as Kicking Horse Culture, sponsors dozens of theatre and artist events, many through regular series such as LIVE Kicks, SUMMER Kicks and FILM Kicks, plus ongoing artist shows at the Art Gallery of Golden (AGOG). Spirit Square in downtown Golden is often the scene of other Golden events such as outdoor concerts and community celebrations.
