Arts Council

Mayor Linda A. Brown has encouraged the Nicola Valley Arts Council to plan a Mayor’s Gala for the Arts to showcase our local talent and raise funds for our arts-based organizations.

“We are attempting to organize a Mayor's Gala for the Arts,” said Mayor Brown. “The proceeds from this Gala will be to fund community arts events and societies within the Nicola Valley.”

The Gala will take place on September 28th at the Civic Centre, presenting Michael Perkins and the Playmor Junction Big Band.  This 18-piece band will be playing popular swing music from the 40’s to 60’s.  There will be a dance floor and opportunities for dancers to win prize money for local non-profit groups.  The evening includes a banquet, cash bar, silent auction, games, art show and local entertainers.

“We absolutely need volunteers,” said Jane Bartle. “We need volunteers to organize competitions, we need volunteers to help with the setup, we need volunteers to help with the cash handling. We figure we need about 20 people on the day, but we also need people who are willing to spearhead subcommittees to organize programs.”

To make this event the stunning success we all want for our community, we need local sponsors and many helpers.   Check our website for a list of ways you can help and to volunteer email This email address is being protected from spambots.
