Along with many of you, we watched Dr. Bonnie Henry as she issued the latest directive for summer in BC.
While disappointing, we were ultimately expecting this: there will be no large community gatherings this summer.
We simply don't have enough community immunity yet to come together in large groups. And so it is with great regret but strong resolve that we are formally postponing the 2020 Brentwood Bay Festival and our summer series of Music in the Park until 2021.
We respect the direction set by the Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, and the provincial government. As we have been told, our ability to hold community events depends on ALL of us respecting those basic instructions: wash your hands, social distance and stay home as much as possible.
And that resolve? That as a community, we navigate these unprecedented times until the day arrives that we can come together once again as a community. We have a special celebration in Pioneer Park on standby when the situation changes; until then, stay safe, stay home and stay well.
We are very grateful to our community sponsors who support the Brentwood Bay Festival! . The logos above are the community sponsors who have come together to help us bring our big day to fruition! Our Presenting Sponsors and Friends of the Festival can be found on the sponsor page. Be sure to check them out too!

For years we have dreamed of having a permanent stage in Pioneer Park, and thanks to the hard work of people like Geoff Bate, this dream came true. For a complete list of our community donors, volunteers & sponsors who made this happen click here
