Join us at the 2020 Mayor's Gala for the Arts
January 18 - 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Considered by many to be the birthplace of the Renaissance, the striking landscapes, medieval villages and rolling hills of Tuscany have inspired artists for generations. On January 18, 2020 in the Colombo Lodge, the Mayor’s Gala for the Arts will transport you to Tuscany for the 13th annual celebration of the arts and culture sector in Kamloops with Viva le Arti: Under The Tuscan Moon.

Guests will bask in the welcoming old-world charm of a Tuscan village while enjoying a sumptuous meal served family-style (in Italy, everybody’s family), inspired by the exquisite sights and flavours of Tuscany. The gala is also known for its captivating entertainment, and this year will feature enchanting Italian enthused offerings and other exciting enjoyments.

In addition to the delightful sights, sounds and tastes, the evening boasts a silent auction with items including travel packages, event tickets and restaurant experiences that will be sure to please, as well as a raffle for an exciting grand prize.

The evening will culminate with the presentation of the Mayor’s Awards for the Arts, celebrating achievements in three categories: Emerging Artist, Enduring Supporter and Corporate Champion.

We look forward to your joining us under the Tuscan moon in celebration of the arts in Kamloops.

Tickets are $125, and available from Kamloops Live! Box Office.
