Whether you’re learning about the unique history of the area, participating in the Sculpture Walk, or chatting with locals at Millennium Park, Castlegar is an excellent destination for the authentic traveller.

We are a cultural hotspot that boasts unique Doukhobor heritage, and a deep connection to the land around us. During the summer months, Castlegar is also home to an Art Walk, where artists are matched with local businesses scattered throughout town. At the Kootenay Gallery of Art, a year-round venue, you can view contemporary art exhibitions. The works of over 100 local artisans are sold in the gift shop.
