This year's festival will be held on June 3rd. There will be an evening concert on Friday June 2nd.

Our festival is a time to come together asĀ  a community and celebrate who we are. We boast a parade, a full market of crafts, artisans and fresh produce. On our stage we present a full day of performances from musicians and entertainers from across BC and Canada. There will be games and entertainment for all ages!

The day starts with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Central Saanich Lions Club in Pioneer Park at 8 a.m.

The Opening Ceremonies will begin after the parade, at 11 a.m. on the stage.

This year we will partner with the Brentwood Bay Village Empourium to a songwriters panel concert on the Friday evening to kick off our festival. There is limited seating, and this will be a ticketed event.


The Festival parade gathers at Bayside Middle School, and starts at 10 a.m. This year you will need to fill out and submit an application form in order to be in the parade.

The parade route: down West Saanich Road, left on Wallace to the roundabout.
