  • Catch some performances by renowned musicians and comedians who love performing in our community,

  • Get your camera rolling and enter a short film in the Golden BC Film Festival, 

  • Head to the Golden Cinema and watch a film from the TIFF Film Circuit during Film Kicks,

  • Join the Purcell Mountain Orchestra, the Golden & District Community Choir, or the Golden Players Theatre Group and spend some time with your neighbours,

  • Get a taste of our local artists when you check out an exhibit at the Art Gallery of Golden, and

  • Learn a little something about the history of Golden at the Golden BC Museum.
Our local Arts Council, Kicking Horse Culture, works hard to keep Golden celebrating arts, culture and community year round. They have been rated in the top 5 Community Arts Councils by the BC Arts Council for the past 3 years!

We were shocked by the amount of arts and culture in Golden and by Kicking Horse Culture. They bring a lot of performances to town and we’ve seen a lot more quality shows than we ever expected.
