Arts & Culture
Live music, theatre, art, festivals... St. John's is filled with cultural diversity and many unique experiences that make life in this city like no other.
Stroll around St. John’s and take in our numerous art galleries. Perched high above the city’s downtown, The Rooms are home to Newfoundland and Labrador’s provincial gallery, museum and archives—perfect for a foggy day retreat.
Searching for live music?
Rock, jazz, country, folk, pop, classical or alternative - you'll often find it all available in one night. From small venue shows throughout the city to big name acts at Mile One Centre and the George Street Festival, you'll get your fix.
Take your pick of live comedy or drama at theatres such as the Arts and Culture Centre or LSPU Hall. In the summertime, catch outdoor performances with the Buskers Festival and Shakespeare by the Sea.
Love independent cinema?
The Nickel Independent Film Festival and the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival bring together filmmakers and cinephiles, while the MUN Cinema Series hosts weekly film screenings throughout the Fall and Winter semesters. There’s no shortage of blockbusters at the Cineplex Cinemas as well.
And if that's not enough, there are plenty of other activities and events to introduce you to the sights and sounds of St. John’s. Check out the city's calendar of events for inspiration.
