Nelson, BC is renowned for its vibrant cultural scene—so much so that it has often been dubbed Canada’s best small arts town. From art to music to theatre, there is always something creative happening and the month of March is no exception. Keep reading to see what’s on!


L’Afko Fait Son Show 


The fourth edition of L’Afko Fait Son Show is back for a fun-filled night of music, laughter, and games. Taking place at the Royal on March 10, the two-part event features rock’n’roll bingo and a live performance from Les Chiclettes, a French musical comedy troupe. Call the venue to reserve your tickets. 


Shred Kelly Mountain Pop Up 


Head over to the Nelson Visitor Centre on March 12 from 4-7pm for a free evening of live music, set outside surrounded by the picturesque mountains. Alternative folk band Shred Kelly is headlining, with support from Miesha & The Spanks and Lady Fingers. Don’t miss it! All ages are welcome. 


Generational Echoes 


This exhibition, launching on March 11 at the Touchstones Nelson Museum of Art and History, presents a series that surveys generational narratives surrounding the Japanese Canadian internment. Generational Echoes is created by Toronto-based multimedia artist Emma Nishimura, who works with everything from traditional etchings and drawing to audio pieces and art installations, and addresses “ideas of memory and loss that are rooted within family stories and inherited narratives.” Admission is free. 


Any of these events make for a great activity to do during a weekend getaway or staycation in Nelson. And, of course, don’t forget to book your stay with us here at Best Western Plus Baker Street Inn! Conveniently located right in the heart of town on historic Baker Street, our newly renovated and award-winning Nelson hotel has elegant accommodations with in-room Jacuzzis, an on-site Italian restaurant, and excellent amenities including a fitness centre.
