A quick but interesting place to stop and browse for something different. There are many First Nations’ arts and crafts to choose from. The quaint café is there to enjoy a snack with something to drink, while you ponder about some very nice artifacts you may just acquire before you leave.

Amazing wonderful happy time we had here celebrating our Family Get Together !!
Super Foods, WoW Surroundings (everything from photos of Eagles to amazing nostalgic artifax! It was here! Pat the Lady who served us was a charm and very helpful in explaining things. Thor...the owner dropped in for a quick bite and said 'hello'. We had an awesome time! The children had fun too :) Great settings in the Brackendale area. Nestled in the surrounding mountains and waterways in Brackendale BC close to Mamquam and Squamish Valley. We said that we could spend days in the Gallery looking at the wonderful things plus reading and so so much more !! Something to see to believe. It's world famous!!

Brackendale Art Gallery Theatre has been here for a long time. It's a rustic, versatile space used as a restaurant and theatre. Artwork is installed in the downstairs restaurant and an upstairs gallery as well. Food is wholesome and served by friendly staff. It's an out of the way theatre, but performances are easily worth the price of admission.

This is a great place to go see a local act.
Kind and interesting owners who have really make their community proud.
Along with local art you will find the building to be as interesting.

I live in Squamish and have been to the Brackendale Art Gallery many times. I think that it's a key part of the Brackendale community. There is a lot of stuff going on there. We recently went to a 'Broadway Theatre' night there and was impressed with the quality of the entertainment. I think that the District of Squamish should buy this facility and incorporate it into the District Plans in the future. It would be a shame to see it drift away.

The Brackendale Art Gallery & Teahouse is a unique gallery and an even more unique experience. It is a passion project of Thor Froslev and Dorte, his wife, nestled in among evergreen trees in Brackendale, a Squamish subdivision just north of town, on the way to Whistler. A visit will reward you in viewing great photography, paintings, sculptures, mixed media art and more. Their salmon bisque, borscht and other soups are renowned. There is frequent live entertainment by artists such as Valdy, Barney Bentall and others - it's like watching live entertainment in your living room. There is also a chapel for special gatherings. Check the web site for their hours. But do plan to experience "The BAG" (Brackendale Art Gallery).

I have been dropping into the Brackendale Art Gallery Theatre Teahouse for over 17 years and never had a bad experience. The meals are hearty, fresh and home made. Can't get any better than that. I have attended music presentation, plays, community events, Jan 1st Eagle Watch Gathering, or just a quiet sit and sip a Latte in front of the beautiful fireplace. Chatting with Thor or Dorte is always a treat and always interesting. The gallery of art is amazing and every month a new artist displays his/her art. I have purchased art from the gallery, as have some of my friends.
Always a warm welcome and great hospitality.

North American bald eagles wintering spot! In 2014, they counted 1600 in the area. Trees by the river are thick with them as they swoop down to feed on salmon. Can you imagine? You will feel like you are watching a movie it is so surreal. Start at the art gallery and ask for the best viewing spots. The gallery itself is worth the stop.
