artist registration is now closed

the thanksgiving studio tour has been the key visual arts event on gabriola island for more than 26 years.

One of the most extensive studio tours in the Pacific Northwest, in 2022 the Tour featured almost 70 artists at more than 60 studios, and attracted hundreds of visitors from Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, and beyond. 

The Gabriola Arts Council’s future is bright, as more artists in all disciplines make Gabriola Island home, and more arts lovers, supporters, and consumers embrace the great Gabriola art vibe.

No tickets required, this is a self-guided tour. Plan your visit using our handy interactive map.

Volunteers Needed

before and during Thanksgiving weekend

It takes a tremendous team effort to organize Studio Tour every year. We’re looking for helpers in the weeks leading up to Studio Tour, as well as the weekend of the tour.
