St. Stephen is a town rich with arts, culture, and heritage. Residents and visitors alike can discover a wide variety of cultural facilities, events, and programs to enjoy in town. The vibrancy of our cultural expression is one more way our people celebrate our pride of place!
Walk through our historic streets to get a taste of the heritage and tradition that established this town in the middle of the 19th Century. Then stop in at Charlotte County Museum and Art Gallery, on Milltown Boulevard across from the WT Booth Centennial Outdoor Pool to explore the visual art gallery, museum, and learning centre.
Each year the Municipal District of St. Stephen coordinates the outdoor Summer Concert Series at the Chocolate Park and Milltown Bandstands. Come out and enjoy a wide variety of music each week from June to August. Our concert series supports the many local artists in Charlotte County by offering a public forum for performance. The concerts are always free and well-attended, so bring your camp chairs out early for the best seats in the house.
St. Croix Theatre is a local theatre group that has been going strong for over 25 years—to date, they have staged 28 plays and more. The theatre group’s productions support fundraisers for local charities within Charlotte County, and they coordinate with local youth groups to provide theatre camps for the kids.
Public art is a wonderful way to improve the experience of living in any community, which is why St. Stephen supports a mural program. A beautiful rainbow mural, located at the St. Croix Public Library, has kicked the program off, and more are coming. (If you own a building within St. Stephen, and you would like to add a mural, please get in touch with the town to see how we can help!)
But murals are just the beginning. St. Croix Arts Showcase is an annual celebration that features visual art, art for sale, live entertainment, feature artist demonstrations, and art activities for all ages. This event usually takes place during the Chocolate Festival in early August.
