    Nickel Days was overwhelmed with the positive response received from our Call to Entertainers this year!  We knew there was a lot of talent in the north but didn't anticipate this many quality options! Thank you to all who submitted!

    The Entertainment Committee met recently to make the difficult decision of choosing which individuals and bands will be offered space at the 2017 Nickel Days Stage Shows. We hope to announce the full line up very soon! Please keep an eye on the Nickel Days website and social media for announcements.

    Nickel Days is committed to showcasing northern artists and being a venue for which they can perform (either through Stage Shows or Talent Contests) for years to come.

  • Friday Stage Show Theme: CELEBRATING 60 YEARS!

    There's always something to look forward to at the Nickel Days Stage Show, but this year will be particularly exciting with the addition of the Friday Night Theme: CELEBRATING 60 YEARS OF MINING!  That's right, mining has been front and centre in our region for 60 years!!  We're pleased to present live performances by some awesome local bands (TIMEPIECE and 5 MINUTES FROM EVERYWHERE) as well as a tonne of information on the mining industry in Thompson, several free draws (valued at $200 each!!) and a whole lot more mining themed fun!  Many thanks to Vale for helping build this theme night.  Admission to the Stage Show is a Nickel Days bracelet.  

  • NEW THIS YEAR!! Paint Lake Package

    We're trying something new this year!! For our friends who live at Paint Lake or are planning to camp at Paint Nickel Days weekend we've got you covered! Greyhound has generously donated a bus and driver to provide transportation to and from the Saturday Night Dance!  Packages are $50 each and must be purchased ahead of time. Package includes transportation to the TRCC from the Marina (return), dance ticket and drink token.  Purchase your package at Paint Lake Lodge (CASH ONLY!) and for each package sold $10 goes towards the Paint Lake Cottage Association.  Space is limited and the folks at the Marina are planning on some fun festivities before the bus departs. Join us at the Thompson Regional Community Centre Saturday June 25th for an amazing time with awesome live music!  The Richard Farrow Band will open the show, followed by the Nelson Little Band who will no doubt have the crowd geared up for this year's Headliner - THE SHEEPDOGS!
