Upcoming Shows in Brentwood

Dustin  Bentall was raised on the music of Neil Young, The Band, Bob Dylan, Tom T. Hall, The Beatles and Steve Earle. Kendel Carson, a rock & roll fiddle player, first played with  Dustin in the Grand Cariboo Opry – and they haven't looked back.  Full details here. 

Postponed: The Blue Hearts at the Brentwood Bay Village Empourium

POSTPONED! Please check back as we hope to reschedule this show in the fall. Just  back from the International Blues Challenge in Memphis where this hot  blues duo made it to the semi finals, this Victoria band comes with  pedigree. Big Hank Lionheart and Mark "Westcoast" Comerford have been  band members from over 39 years in Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Band.  

July 26: Echo Nebraska at Music in the Park

Bursting  on to the Canadian music scene in the fall of 2014 with the  release of  a music video for their first single, ‘Hey, Allison’,  Vancouver’s Echo  Nebraska quickly gained a reputation of combining soul  strung acoustic  songs and subtle shades of Americana Full details here.

Our New Performance Stage

Construction has begun!!!

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.


Best Festival Yet!

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!
