The Island of Creative Expression
With one of the highest number of artists per capita in Canada and many art-centred events, Gabriola has earned its moniker, ‘Isle of the Arts’.
Whether you’re the creator, admirer, or participant, enjoy the island’s rich cultural landscape year-round.
Art, Music & Theatre Festivals
The Gabriola Museum is run by the Gabriola Historical Society and is the place to discover island stories.
The Museum is located on South Road, a comfortable (1.2 km) walk or a short drive up the hill from the ferry dock at Descanso Bay. It is open from May to December.
Visit their website for hours, events and exhibits.
Yellow Flag Art Studios
If the yellow roadside flag is flying, the artist’s studio is open!
The yellow flag program is a Gabriola Island Chamber of Commerce initiative. See where inspiration and creativity come alive in makers’ spaces.
Arts & Culture
The island fosters creativity for all, making it an essential part of life on Gabriola!
Our artists, creators, makers and cultural centres are busy year round and would love to share their passion with you.
