In June we hold the Brentwood Festival in Pioneer Park. We kick off with a songwriters panel concert on Friday night at the Brentwood Bay Village Empourium. This is followed with a full day of fun on Saturday with a parade, pancake breakfast, entertaniment on stage, as well as vendor market.
Each summer we host 7 outdoor concerts at Music in the Park, plus a few extra shows at the Brentwood Bay Village Empourium.

BBCA Chair Ginny Alger pulled this project all together - the funding, contracting the metalworker Jonathan Guthrie who designed and created our beautiful metal frames, and organizing the crew of volunteers who came out to decorate the frames and get them hung up along West Saanich Road in Brentwood Bay.
A huge thank you to Terex for donating the services of their truck and driver for the day!
What and amazing 3 nights! Barney and the team pulled out all the stops this year, with added guests Daniel Lapp, Belle Starr, and on the Friday night, Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo.
We are so proud to have raised just over $30,000.00 for the SIdney Lions Food Bank.
As the last of the music faded into the night at our last evening in the park, we were presented with this lovely gift. This beautiful card was given to us by a young lady who has attended Music in the Park for years, and has always danced up a storm.
We've had a lot of accolades, thanks, and acknowledgements (yep, and even the odd complaint!) over the years for all of our hard work and efforts, but this one... this one. This one really means a lot.
Amanda, this is why we keep on doing what we do as volunteers and dreamers. You've touched us all more than you could ever know, and I can promise you this - we won't stop believing!!!
It was an amazingsummer of music. I know we say this evyer year, but it really was the best one yest!
It takes a community to raise a child, and this baby gets a lot of love from businesses & individuals who donate each year. This year we are very grateful to the support of the District of Central Saanich and the The BC Arts Council.
Thanks to all our dedicated volunteers who came out and helped with set up, clean up, selling merch & 50/50, and all of the other details that come with pulling this summer long event together. You guys rock!
After nearly 20 years of temporary stages in Pioneer Park, the BBCA is building a permanent outdoor stage to be donated to the Municipality.
The new stage will be a community gathering place, hosting performances of all types – music, drama, lectures, family movie nights, workshops, yoga sessions, school performances, wedding ceremonies.. the possibilities are endless.
The park is already the site of our most popular events, Music in the Park and the Brentwood Bay Festival.
The stage will be funded and built 100% by donations and volunteers. No public funds have been requested. Working with a construction budget of $150,000, we have raised nearly two-thirds of this amount from local businesses, associations, construction suppliers and private citizens.
We welcome your participation!
All donations over $20 will be issued a tax receipt.
All donations over $1000 will be recognized in all promotion for the Grand Opening and displayed permanently on the BBCA website.
All donations over $5000 (bronze), over $10,000 (silver) and over $20,000 (gold) will be recognized on a permanent plaque to be mounted prominently on the new facility. As a result, they may be expensed as 'marketing' for corporate tax purposes.
Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2017.
For more information please call Geoff Bate at 250-415-8213.
We are most grateful for the support we have received in making this dream a reality. See our sponsors listed on the Performance Stage page.
This year the Brentwood Bay Festival included a songwriters panel concert on Friday June 2, as well as a full day of events in Pioneer Park on Saturday June 3.
The panel concert at the Brentwood Bay Village Empourium was a huge success, and a great addition to the festival. We have had such amazing feedback that we will definitely hold another one next year, if not sooner. Please stay tuned!
