ArtsWells Festival of All Things Art Expect the unexpected!

Wells has always been a town vibrant of arts and culture. In the 1930s, musical acts were enjoyed in the very same Wells Community Hall where many of this year’s shows and exhibitions are being held. Artists have traveled from across the country to this little mountain town to be part of this inspiring collaboration! This is a 4-day outdoor & indoor event designed with community in mind. We hope that you will enjoy the weekend taking in all the great artists, the local flavour of nature trails, historical sites, artisans, and friendly folk!

Thank you to all the ArtsWells sponsors
