Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Since its inception in 1982, the Hornby Festival Society has earned a national reputation for artistic excellence and adventurous programming. In its early years, the Festival focused primarily on the classical genre, and has evolved to include jazz, world & traditional music, modern dance, and spoken word.

Many of Canada's foremost artists have performed here!

This annual ten-day Festival presents twelve to sixteen concerts in late July/early August. The primary venues are the charming Community Hall and, for our outdoor performances, Olsen Farm, with its fabulous ocean and mountain backdrop. Beginning in 2006, the Hornby Festival began its widely successful "Art in Unusual Places", with the mainstage artists performing short sets at unusual outdoor locations such as Sandpiper Bluffs, the Recycling Depot, or the beach at Big Tribune Bay. Hornby Island is located two islands east of Vancouver Island, north of Nanaimo. If ferry connections are made, the trip from Vancouver takes approximately five hours. The Festival is sustained by Festival Society memberships, donations, program advertisers, government and foundation funders, ticket sales, and fundraising events.
