British Columbia’s largest bluegrass and old-time music festival

All of us are itching to get back to normal and we are hoping that everyone is staying safe during these challenging times.  

Please heed the advice of public health officials, and consider purchasing a CD or merchandise directly from our roster of fabulous artists. They lost out on 2020 and, sadly, things aren’t looking good for 2021. Although vaccinations are rolling out in B.C., the easing of crowd restrictions and border closures remain uncertain for our June dates. We have no alternate event to announce at this point and will follow the guidance of health officials. Booking and planning a festival requires significant time, which is not on our side.  

We are extremely grateful to our funding agencies: The BC Arts Council,  B.C. Gaming, and the Cowichan Valley Regional District — along with some two-dozen mom-and-pop businesses in the Lake Cowichan area who have taken sponsorship positions. Please support them if you can. Keep playing those instruments. We will be together again.
