Coutts Centre Calendar

The Coutts Centre for Western Canadian Heritage is an extensive garden venue that hosts various types of events. Each year the University of Lethbridge hosts 4 ‘En Plein Air’ art events and the Coutts Centre Arts Festival, which are all free to attend.

There is a great opportunity for artists of all levels to come and use the Centre to achieve their respective artistic visions. Whether it be writing a novel in our lovely old Writer’s Cabin or painting Jim’s various native themed gardens with stunning views towards wheat fields, the Porcupine Hills and the Rocky Mountain Range.

Check out our Calendar to see that events are coming up, or you can book your own event at the Coutts Centre by contacting us at or 403-915-6497.
