Arts on Gabriola

The Island of Creative Expression

With one of the highest number of artists per capita in Canada and many art-centred events, Gabriola has earned its moniker, ‘Isle of the Arts’.

Whether you’re the creator, admirer, or participant, enjoy the island’s rich cultural landscape year-round.

Art, Music & Theatre Festivals

Gabriola Arts Council and other community organizations host lots of events throughout the year, ensuring plenty of opportunities to get creatively engaged.  Below are some of our annual festivals.

For more events and to see what’s happening while you’re here, check out our Gabriola Events website.

Gabriola Museum

The Gabriola Museum is run by the Gabriola Historical Society and is the place to discover island stories.

The Museum is located on South Road, a comfortable (1.2 km) walk or a short drive up the hill from the ferry dock at Descanso Bay. It is open from May to December.

Visit their website for hours, events and exhibits.

Yellow Flag Art Studios

If the yellow roadside flag is flying, the artist’s studio is open!

The yellow flag program is a Gabriola Island Chamber of Commerce initiative.  See where inspiration and creativity come alive in makers’ spaces.
