The two-week Kootenay Festival of the Performing Arts has been a cultural cornerstone in Nelson and Trail and surrounding communities since 1930 and is one of the oldest festival traditions in BC.

Dance begins at the Capitol on Wednesday at 5 p.m, and runs full days Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with the highlights concert on Saturday at 7 p.m.

Speech arts and vocal/choral at the Bethel Christian Church and strings, guitar, piano and woodwinds are at St. Saviour’s Church, April 11 to 16 with the highlights concert April 16 at 7 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre.
