Registrations are being accepted for artists and venues that would like to participate in the Columbia Basin Culture Tour.

The annual event, now heading into its fifth year, is a two day celebration of culture. This year’s tour is set for August 9 and 10, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The self-guided tour showcases local arts, culture and heritage and is offered at no charge to the general public. Full colour directories lead the public to participating venues throughout the Columbia Basin.

The tour is open to artists of all types, includes visual, written, performing, media and inter-arts. It is meant as an opportunity for the public to visit artists’ studios that may not regularly be open to the public and purchase works directly from the artists.

The final registration deadline for artists wanting to join the tour is April 14. There’s also an early bird registration discount being offered until March 31.

To register, visit cbculturetour.com. For information call 250-505-5505.

The Columbia Basin Culture Tour is a project of the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance and is funded by Columbia Basin Trust which supports the social, economic and environmental well being of the Columbia Basin.
