Thirty+ years and growing strong....

We need your help!

The Wallaceburg and District Council for the Arts, is a registered charity that relies on well attended events and donations and grants from the community provide quality entertainment and help promote local musicians and local artists.

If you have a few excess funds that you would like to donate to us, it will help us to bring quality entertainment to Wallaceburg, we would appreciate your donation. Alternatively, if you represent an organization who gives grants to organizations for the development of Art and Music, we would love to talk to you.

If you have a gently used musical instrument that you would like to donate to us, it will help us to develop our Community Music Program, known as the Wallaceburg Concert Band. We evaluate the instrument and assign a value and give the donor a tax receipt for the value of the instrument that they donate. It is a great way to support young musicians in our community who will use the instruments you donate. Call Dave Elliott 519-809-2224 for more details and to arrange drop off or pickup
