The Arts in the Canadian West

If you want to experience Western Canada, then you should visit Banff. If you want to understand the city, then you should really visit Banff Centre. The sub-title for the center is "for arts and creativity" and they mean every syllable of that description: look forward to performing arts, indigenous arts, literary arts, media and production and artists' facilities.

Throughout the year, the Banff Centre offers a wide range of programs, including the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, the Banff Children's Festival and the Banff International String Quartet, as well as other classical music programs. The city is a vibrant center of the arts, and the Centre is the center of the city.
