Cultural and artistic activities range widely, from food cultivation and dining, music production and consumption, microbrewing and wine tasting to theater, dance, fine art, and exploration of nature.


Nearly 70 public art sites and more than 50 restaurants, bars, and coffee shops can be found.

The Sundial Bridge - a Santiago Calatrava masterpiece – is one of the largest working sundials in the world. The Sundial experience gives visitors a connection to nature, public art, trails, Wintu history, McConnell Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, Redding Rodeo, and parks along the river – featuring a diversion dam, skate park, performing spaces, and Diestelhorst Landing.
