Public Art Galleries and Events

The Mission Arts Council operates the Mission Art Gallery in a restored heritage house dating from the 1920s. Exhibitions typically feature the work of local Fraser Valley artists, such as Lora Armbruster's oil landscapes or the creations of the Mission Weavers and Spinners Guild. Check out the gift shop and tearoom.

The day-long Mission Children's Festival (June) is also sponsored by the Mission Arts Council, offering artistic fun for the entire family. Add a splash of colour to the skin with traditional henna art or face-painting, or make headbands and hats at the Imagination Station. Jugglers, dancers, and musicians enhance the festive vibe at the Fraser River Heritage Park.
