Cultural activities

The Municipality is known for its landscapes, outdoor activities, farms and churches, but it is also a place where we value our culture and heritage.

The list of resident artists is impressive and is part of a long tradition that includes, among others, Orson Wheeler, architect and sculptor, a native of Barnston-Ouest. Many artists, poets and writers came to settle here in the 60s and 70s.
Some attractions or events are hard to resist.

The Rozynski Art Centre

The Rozynski Art Centre was set up following a vital leg by sculptor Stanley Rozynski and potter Wanda Rozynska. The Mission of the Centre today is to accompany ceramists and to offer training and residence to artists who wish to improve their skills. Visitors can stop by and put their hands to the clay. Become a member and enjoy the program.

The Rozynski Art Centre presents a contemporary ceramic event in the heart of the hamlet of Way's Mills. We invite you to come and live a unique experience where ceramicists and visitors meet in a rural environment on the banks of the Niger River.



A unique Festival where burlesque, music, dance, wrestling and skateboarding to name a few come together. A summer must-visit in a natural environment!
