About the Trout

Peterborough is like a hothouse for a special breed of artists – creative flowers who love the Kawartha landscape and our little section of the universe. You might say we like the limelight, but not too much. Most of us come with a sense of adventure. If we can’t find it, we build it. They will come.

The Trout focuses on local arts and culture for Peterborough and the surrounding area. We try to swim deep and bring our readers news of the people, organizations and events that hide in the shadows of our eclectic art scene. We want to foster critical dialogue and identity while we celebrate our diversity.

Show us what you got and help us build the arts in the Electric City – after all, we’re all in this troutpond together.
