Arts and Culture

The people of Saint John know that a strong and supportive arts community and diverse cultural population allow the City to nurture a vibrant, creative, and dynamic landscape.

No wonder Saint John was designated a Cultural Capital of Canada in 2010 and Cultureville in 2011. Saint John is repeatedly recognized for its exciting history of visual arts, theatrical performances, galleries, public art, live music, dance, and festivals.

Our City is home to many professional artists, as well as community-based arts and educational organizations, and we invite every resident to participate—either by appreciating others’ work, or creating your own!
