The Sunshine Coast is home to the highest per capita population of artists and crafters in Canada. With its stunning natural beauty it’s no wonder the Sunshine Coast has a thriving artistic community! The Sunshine Coast Art Crawl is the signature event of the fall season and a “must do.” During this three day event, over 100 + galleries, studios and more will open their doors to welcome you. Take a scenic drive along the Sunshine Coast, stopping at community hubs and studio events; grab a map and passport for your chance to win great prizes. Stay for the day or better yet a few days and absorb beautiful art work, the bounty of the fall harvest and musical delights. For more information please visit Sunshine Coast Arts Crawl.
