Arts

There's a growing vibrant culture and arts scene in Kimberley.

Kimberley’s downtown pedestrian area (also known as the Platzl) is a year round hub for festivals and events. From JulyFest to the Arts on the Edge festivals, to special late night shopping, activities and weekend markets, downtown Kimberley provides entertainment for people of all ages.

Centre 64 is the centre of Kimberley’s arts community, and is located just metres from the downtown pedestrian area. Centre 64 houses an art gallery, with two exhibition spaces; the studio for dance & music; a theatre with seating for over 120, the Fibre Artists Guild room and the Arts Council office. Future plans include an on-site ceramic arts studio.

Unique to Kimberley is the Underground Mining Railway — an interpretive cultural and historical experience. The train travels from downtown Kimberley, through the Lower Mark Creek valley and the old mining powerhouse, and up on into the Kimberley Alpine Resort

Kimberley also hosts a variety of cultural events including the Dirtbag film festival, concerts, races, and seasonal celebrations of all sorts. Some of Kimberley's happenings might include spectacularly costumed bocce players, 70+ teams of checkered ball kickers, round-the-mountain racers and adventuring filmgoers. There might be DJ’s, dancing, bull-riding or schnitzel eating. There could be bicycles and longboards, downhill racers, candlelight x-c skiing, outdoor painting and indoor rhythms. But there will be, guaranteed, a great time.
