Through living and working in the Bay of Quinte region, we’ve learned a thing or two about all the things to do, see, eat and explore around here. Join us each week as we share safer, must-do activities in the BoQ, and check out the rest of our must-dos HERE.


Yes, another COVID reminder! Keep washing those hands, physically distancing and wearing your mask while you travel around the region. For the latest updates, please visit the Hastings-Prince Edward Public Health website.


John. M Parrott Art Gallery

254 Pinnacle Street, Belleville

The Belleville Public Library has been home to this public gallery since 1973, hosting exhibitions for local, national and international artists. The gallery is offering both in-person and online viewing options, so you can enjoy the current exhibitions no matter your comfort level.

Gallery 121

48 Bridge Street E, Belleville

Needle felting, woven silk, carved soapstone, oil, acrylic — it’s all here, folks, and there’s plenty of colour and texture to enjoy! Current works can be viewed online or in person, whichever you’d prefer.

Quinte Arts Council

36 Bridge Street E, Belleville

The Arts Council’s storefront gallery may be temporarily closed, but the QAC team has stayed busy supporting local artists with virtual shows and online contests. Their latest project is the Virtual Holiday Market, where you can shop products from local artists on the Belleville Downtown District online marketplace!

Belleville Art Association

208 Front Street, Belleville

You’ll find work from member artists on the walls at this small downtown gallery. You may find something for your OWN wall, or even a handful of hand-painted cards for the holiday season. PS. The BAA’s 53rd Annual Juried Show is on until Nov. 19 at the Parrott Gallery!

Paulo’s & Dinkel’s Restaurants

38 Bridge Street E, Belleville

The fun really begins when you start to notice local art in other places around the city! We think the restaurant building itself is a piece of art, but inside Paulo’s and Dinkel’s you’ll find work from local artists hanging on its historic walls.

TownePlace Suites by Marriott

400 Bell Boulevard, Belleville

Does your staycation involve treating yourself to a night at a local hotel? Keep an eye out for artwork from local nature photographer Mark Hopper in the halls!
