Two Art Scholarships for Fall 2017 

In Recognition of the Canada 150 Celebrations, the Nicola Valley Community Arts Council provided two $150 Scholarships to deserving youth who are participating in art and cultural programs, classes, lessons or workshops in the community during this calendar year.

Bluebird Coffee House!

We are looking forward to a fun event this Saturday! 

And we hope you will join us! Denise and Al, our house band, will perform and host the event. Willard, Quade , and Anna-Marie are our musical guests for the evening's country music theme. We are expecting guests from the Netherlands! And they are line dance fans! So we have Lizette Nel, of the Love to Dance Academy joining us to lead some line dancing. Of course we hope to enjoy our Dutch visitors and their line dancing! We will provide savoury and sweet plates, with choices of (non-alcoholic) beverages. Coffee, of course!

Come join us!
