The award winning Buckhorn Festival of the Arts has a time-honoured reputation for showcasing gallery-quality displays of fine art that appeal to a broad range of art enthusiasts and collectors. It is an annual weekend event featuring local cuisine and live musical entertainment. The Festival is proud to present an amateur art competition, youth art display and an interactive Art Activity Zone for all Festival patrons.
Our Mission is to connect the community and the Buckhorn Community Centre by creating and implementing an inclusive, sustainable cultural event. Our vision is to be the defining cultural event of the community. In keeping with our Mission and Vision, we have changed our name from the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival to the Buckhorn Festival of the Arts. In 2019 the Festival will include more diverse and contemporary mediums and genres.
The Buckhorn Festival of the Arts has been the major fundraiser for the Buckhorn Community Centre (BCC): an independently-owned, not-for-profit, charitable organization and the hub of cultural and recreational programs for families living and vacationing in the area. With the help of over 200 dedicated volunteers, the Festival provides a venue for visitors to participate in a world class art experience. Admission and parking are FREE.
New for 2019, our name, Buckhorn Festival of the Arts.
