Tourism is a significant contributor to the North Bay region’s economy. Each year, the North Bay region attracts an estimated 1.2 million visitors with many sporting and meeting events taking place throughout the year.
Many visitors perceive the area as an outdoor activity vacation destination and engage in four-season outdoor activities. However, the region offers much more - North Bay is also a hub for arts and culture activities and events, such as the annual Summer in the Park Festival, which takes place during the Civic long weekend in August.
North Bay provides many opportunities to experience arts, culture and entertainment in the downtown district. Works from our abundance of talented artists can be viewed at local art galleries or join a Gallery Hop and take a tour of up to six galleries.
In addition to the many recreational and cultural activities available, North Bay has many other attractions to be visited, including the Chief Commanda II Lake Nipissing cruises, the North Bay Waterfront, the Heritage Railway Company’s Mini-Train, Carousels, and the Capitol Performing Arts Centre.
Tourism North Bay Association (TNB) is a new organization, comprised of hotel operators, restaurants, events, attractions and other like-minded partners whose mandate is to increase tourism activity in the City of North Bay, by focusing on 4 key pillars: capacity building, marketing, bid funds, and product development.
At the 2018 Ford World Women's Curling Championship kick off media breakfast, Tourism North Bay launched a new web portal experiencenorthbay.ca designed to showcase the city’s stories, assets and resources through photos, videos and publications.
