Arts, Culture & Heritage in Sechelt

The District of Sechelt takes pride in supporting a vibrant arts and culture community. 

Our Public Art Collection contains works dating back to 1902 and is on display year-round.

The  annual Sechelt Arts Festival supports both local and off-Coast artists and performers working in all genres.

Take a peak into the studios of our local artists during the annual Sunshine Coast Art Crawl.
