Trail & District Arts Council

The Trail and District Arts Council (TDAC) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to foster the arts in Greater Trail by providing services and resources to its arts, cultural and heritage affiliate organizations.

TDAC aims to raise awareness of the arts and offer the community a way to experience the diversity that arts and culture have to offer. In addition, they manage The Bailey Theatre and present professional and emerging artists in and around Greater Trail. With over 40 years of community shows, TDAC presents over 50 events annually!

The Bailey hosts concerts, theatre, comedy and more from well-known acts like the Barenaked Ladies to smaller emerging talent such as Lisa Nicole. With a seating capacity of 721, the Theatre has an intimate atmosphere and all seats provide an excellent view of the stage. Smaller performances, events and meetings take place in the Muriel Griffiths Recital Room, next to the theatre, which holds 80-100 people.
