The Island Stage!


Enjoy captivating performances from Vancouver Islands' best professional bands and other talented performers with diverse abilities!

This stage comes alive just moments before 10:00 A.M., and the excitement continues throughout the day until 6:00 P.M. 


Genres are varied, ensuring there's something for everyone.

We carefully consider sensibilities when selecting our lineup of music sets to showcase on stage each year.


Join us for lively dancing on the mill felt and find shade under inviting tents set up for everyone to enjoy, within view of our main stage. Everyone is welcome!

Indulge in the offerings from our food vendors, explore festival merchandise, and discover handcrafted treasures from local artisans, including tie-dye shirts, handmade jewelry, personalized signs, and much more.

In front of the 1800-year-old building, you will find talented face painters, an engaging instrument workshop, and people leisurely enjoying the music under the shade of trees.

We hope to see you there!
