For the first time ever, Campbell River is hosting international and nationally known Fine Artists to participate in the River City Arts Festival.
In addition to the usual one day festival, whereby the downtown core gets closed , the River City Arts Festival has added a new feature this year, The Festival Gallery.

Some of Vancouver Islands finest artists will be displaying and selling their art.
The Festival Gallery, which will be in the Community Centre features many artists that are worth seeing.
