As humans we are programmed to be both creative and to appreciate creativity, and the community of White Rock, though small, has a mighty arts community who love to share their work and also love to teach their disciplines. Here’s what is happening in White Rock’s art scene this summer!

The Great Canadian Cookoff – Seniors Edition
June 19 – 28, 2021
Join Semiahmoo Arts this Saturday, June 19 as they kickoff an exciting cooking event series.

Submit by June 28th. This virtual event is for the seniors (55+) in our community.

Live at Blue Frog
Open up those patio doors, or reserve a seat at The Pond, this Saturday, June 19 and enjoy a tribute to Roy Orbison while honouring the man with the voice, Michael Demers, who sadly left us earlier this year. And then on June 26, enjoy “Ladies Sing the Blues” – five beautiful and extremely talented ladies belting out the songs of the blues greats. Both shows are streaming on Blue Frog TV.
