Arts and Culture


Greater Sudbury is a northern cultural capital celebrated from coast to coast for its artistic excellence, vibrancy and creativity.

A diverse cultural sector breathes life into our entire community through a range of programs and events which showcase the immense talent of local artists who draw inspiration from the land and the rich multicultural heritage of the region. Our city is home to a growing base of arts and culture businesses and employment.

We’re bursting with culture and are home to one-of-a-kind and world-renowned events celebrating a combination of art, music, food and so much more year-round.
