Do you have a story to tell?

Does it tell us something about the local arts and culture scene? Is it something we haven’t covered?

Coast Weekend is seeking stories of makers and doers working in the Columbia-Pacific region.

These could be artists, musicians, chefs, gardeners. Anyone who helps make the coast vibrant.

In addition, if you have an upcoming event you’d like to share with us, please email the information to

Press releases should be concise and clear. Tell us what the event is, where it is, how much it costs, why it’s being put on as well as any contact information for questions. You can also share photos related to the event with us that include a caption describing the image.
