About ArtsWells Festival of All Things Art…
ArtsWells Festival is presented by Island Mountain Arts, and we are based out of Wells, BC.
Wells has always been a town vibrant of arts and culture. In the 1930’s, musical acts were enjoyed in the same Community Hall where many of this year’s shows and exhibitions are held. This is a 4-day outdoor & indoor event taking place across 10 stages and is designed with community in mind. Artists have traveled from across the country to this little mountain town take part in this inspiring collaboration, now in its 15th year. We hope that you will enjoy the weekend taking in the great artists, the local flavour of nature trails, historical sites, artisans and friendly folk!
Thank you to all of our ArtsWells Partners and Sponsors!
