Winter Celebration of Culture in Durham

From the month-long Celebration of the Arts, to the popular Studio Tour, Fridays at the Foster concerts, and year-round theatre performances, you’ll quickly discover that art is at the very core of the Uxbridge community. You’re invited to spend a wintery day exploring our artistic hub for yourself!

On your way to downtown Uxbridge, make a stop at the Buckingham Gallery, a private gallery of Canadian artwork, including Canada’s Group of Seven and their contemporaries.  Be sure to check their website for special shows happening throughout the year. When you arrive in town, the Tin Cup Caffe will serve you a perfect latte, homemade soup and famous carrot cake, and while you enjoy your treats you can drool over the beautiful artwork covering the walls.

Just a few steps away is one of Canada’s most beloved book stores: Blue Heron Books. In addition to the carefully curated book collection, you can find the Blue Heron Studio at the back of the store; a creative learning space for those interested in exploring the interaction between imagination and artistic expression. And perhaps most popular of all, Blue Heron hosts year-round literary events that bring world-renowned authors right to the heart of Uxbridge.

From Blue Heron, you are walking distance to the Uxbridge Music Hall, one of the great cultural hubs of Uxbridge. Take in music or theatre (or both), experiencing local talent and great acoustics in this beautiful historic building.

Tuck in at the Rolling View Highlands B & B for a spectacular experience where you will stay in an environment with a private view for 30 kilometres or more at the top of the stunning Oak Ridges Morraine.

After breakfast, enjoy a wintery walk while you take a trip back in time in the charming downtown on a Historic Walking Tour . You’ll see where merchants, doctors, beekeepers, carriage makers, shoemakers, masons, and politicians lived. Take a break to shop and dine, and soak up the architecture that holds the stories of years gone by.
