Event Details

2017 Columbia Basin Culture Tour

  • August 12 from 1o am to 5 pm
  • August 13 from 10 am to 5 pm

The Columbia Basin Culture Tour, now in its 9th year, is an annual FREE self-guided tour in which you, the ‘tourist’  may visit your choice of unique artistic and cultural venues in the East and West Kootenays – more than 80 of them, in fact.

The tour is a project of the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance and is funded by Columbia Basin Trust which supports the social, economic and environmental well-being of the Columbia Basin.

The purpose of the tour is to:

  • Promote the arts
  • Increase public awareness of the quality and diversity of art which is being created in the Columbia Basin
  • Offer educational experiences for the attendees
  • Help foster new relationships between artists, heritage workers and the community.

Choose to visit artists’ studios, archives, museums, cultural centers, art galleries and heritage sites throughout the Columbia Basin. You will meet and talk with artists and artisans, see new collections, watch performances, interpretive displays and demonstrations, and have the opportunity to purchase books by local authors or a special piece of art to take home with you.

To get the most out of your Columbia Basin Cultural Tour:

  • Go to the Columbia Basin Culture Tour website at: http://cbculturetour.com/. In the Artist/Venue Profiles section, find the map and the list of participating venues, separated into their general locations within the Columbia Basin.
  • Decide which venues you would like to visit and plan your itinerary.
  • Pick up your FULL-COLOR PRINTED DIRECTORY and use it to guide you along your way.  Directories can be obtained at tourist information centres and any of the venues. Or view online at: http://cbculturetour.com/downloads/cbct_directory_2017.pdf
