Arts and Culture in Port Hardy

In July, Communities in Bloom, a volunteer group which facilitates the beautification of Canadian communities, hosts a Garden Tour through selected gardens in Port Hardy. Visitors tour the gardens, occupied by artists capturing the beauty of the area, and a tea in the afternoon. This is a great opportunity to see works of art on canvas and growing in the soil.

In the spring, there is a Spring Art Display in Coal Harbour. This exciting event features local artists using an old school as their gallery and workshop. They exhibit their pieces and show guests their skills and techniques.

The rich, natural resources found in Port Hardy are the inspiration for the large celebration held in the third weekend in July. Taking place mainly in Carrot Park Filomi Days acknowledges the fishing, logging and mining industries which bring prosperity to the Port Hardy region.
