Welcome to Thunder Bay!

Nestled on the shores of Lake Superior in Northwestern Ontario, the city is a nature lover’s dream with a vibrant arts and culture scene.

This year, we checked in with the staff from Thunder Bay Art Gallery. As part of the Ontario Culture Days festival, the gallery will be offering free admission to their current exhibitions, book readings, self-guided walks and workshops both online and in-person. Check out their Event Hub: There’s something for the whole family!
