Whether you're visiting for the weekend, returning for one of our annual celebrations, or moving into our community, your friends and neighbors in Canadian welcome you to our "Oasis on the Prairie."
While in Canadian, make sure to visit our many area attractions. The River Valley Pioneer Museum tells the tales of years gone by in our area and often serves as an exhibit hall for local artists. The Citadelle Art Museum, opened to the public in May of 2009, houses a world-renowned collection of art. Work up your appetite by taking a walk on the historic Canadian River Wagon Bridge or by strolling around the paths at beautiful Lake Marvin. Don't exhaust yourself in the great outdoors for too long because Canadian is home to many unique retail shops that you won't want to miss!
After a busy day of sight-seeing and shopping, you'll want to recharge at one of our many excellent restaurants and then head to the Palace Theatre, celebrating 100 years in 2009, where they feature first-run movies using world premier digital projection and sound technology.
Or, you may want to attend a live concert at the state of the art Texas Crown Performance Hall where top rated artists from around the country grace our community with music of every genre from the country music of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to a Las Vegas style show featuring the "Rat Pack" crooning the standard tunes of Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and Frank Sinatra!
Of course, you might not have time to see all that Canadian has to offer in just one visit, so we hope you will come back to see us often! To stay up to date on the latest happenings in Canadian, and for timely information on jobs and housing, consider a subscription (online orby mail) to our award winning local newspaper, The Canadian Record.
If we can ever provide you with more information about Canadian or answer any of your questions, please stop by to see us or give us a call at the Canadian Visitors' Center located downtown on highway 60-83. We're so glad to welcome you to Canadian Texas,
