PDCAC is the voice of the cultural community with backing of over 200 individual memberships and group members.  We proudly present 2 annual celebrations of the arts being the Penticton & District Community Arts Awards and Arts Rising Festival Penticton.

Our Programs How We Do It

The Penticton Arts Council is the umbrella organization supporting local artists, connecting with Provincial and Municipal governments in terms of arts and culture policy and a council that provides programming, events and artists recognition to our community. The Penticton Arts Council has been serving the local artists and arts and culture community for over 55 years! Annually, we celebrate our local artists by way of hosting an ajudicated awards event.With 14 categories and over 70 nominations annually, the Arts Awards are fully supported by the Penticton community of artists and supporters of the arts. In 2017 we launched the annual Arts Rising Festival Penticton which is a multi-disciplinary, multi-venue celebration of the arts in Penticton's walkable downtown core.
