Friends of The Arts

The Penticton & District Community Arts Council is about to celebrate its 55th birthday! To celebrate we are kicking off our “200 Friends of the Arts” campaign. We are hoping to have 200 organizations and or individuals donate $100 each to reach our goal!

The Penticton Arts Council, housed in the Leir House, has been advocating for community arts and culture in Penticton and District area since 1960. Many of our prominent arts organizations have been with the Council for many years: Penticton Art Gallery, Penticton Concert Band, Penticton Kiwanis Music & Dance Festival, Penticton Academy of Music, Many Hats Theatre Group, Penticton Concert Society, Okanagan Symphony, and the Federation of Canadian Artists to name a few.

In 2014, we launched the first Arts Awards. This is an annual celebration in February recognizing award winners for their outstanding achievement. The arts awards serve to underline the importance of the arts in our communities, and to recognize individuals and organizations for their significant contributions and for exceptional support of arts and culture in the Penticton and District area. We are pleased to tell you that we had over 250 attending our 1st and 2nd Arts Awards!

We appreciate all the support we receive from our community yet we continue to face many challenges when it comes to funding, which is what makes everything we do possible. Please consider being one of our
“200 Friends of the Arts” and make a minimum $100 donation to the Penticton Arts Council so that we can continue to deliver the support needed to help community arts and culture thrive in Penticton.
