“From the emotion and entertainment of a great theatre performance, to the immersive and inspiring rhythm of our music scene, and the rich history which has brought us forward to today, Culture and Heritage is deeply woven into the fabric of Nanaimo. That’s truly worth celebrating” said Mayor Leonard Krog.
