The Arts Council is a non-profit organization aiding in programming functions according to the needs of the community, and searching for and acting as a registry for potential local talent, aiding in its development and recognition. The Carberry Plains Arts Council serves the Carberry, Brookdale, Wellwood and the Rural Municipality of North Cypress.

The Arts Council sponsors art classes and workshops for all ages

The Arts Council also takes pride in providing quality performances, including music, comedy and drama, for the community and schools.

The annual Harvest of Hobbies & Trade Show is held the last Saturday in August each year.  The Carberry Community Centre is filled with on average 70 exhibitors displaying everything from crafts and artwork as well as many local businesses and no profit organizations.  A great time to do your Christmas shopping while supporting the Arts.

Our Annual General Meeting is held every July.  Everyone is welcome to attend without commitment.   Please consider helping the Arts Council by volunteering or becoming a Board member (which are definitely in demand!).  Call the Arts office at 834-6617.
