Vancouver Spotlight

Arts & Culture in Vancouver, WA

Creativity takes many forms in Vancouver USA. With a growing artist and music community there is no shortage of talent. Our rich blend of beauty and history is a perfect inspiration for anyone who appreciates art—be it in the form of pieces created by one of our many talented artists, painters, writers, performers, or craftsperson.

Artistic Expressions

If you enjoy music, Vancouver has many options, from classical to contemporary. The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra focuses on classical revival while many other venues offer contemporary music. Two great outdoor venues are Sleep Country Amphitheater, which features the hottest musicians on tour, and the Pavilion at Esther Short Park which features a summer concert series.

For those who appreciate the literary arts, Vancouver is home to one of the nation’s few Brautigan Libraries. Named after the famed beatnik poet, this “very public library” features over 400 unpublished works from writers across the globe. As one of the fixtures of the Clark County Historical Museum, visitors are always welcome to pull up a chair and browse through the stacks.

Dance & Art Festivals

In addition to  downtown art galleries, Vancouver has no shortage of performing or visual arts either. With a strong Hawaiian cultural presence, it’s only natural that we have one of the most prominent Polynesian festivals on the mainland. The Three Days of Aloha has dancers, drummers, and other performers that will make you think you’re in the Islands. Another summer favorite is the Recycled Arts Festival in June. Come marvel at everyday objects turned into whimsical or purposeful pieces.
