This event was such an overwhelming success, that we are adding it to our regular festival events.
This will include a panel discussion & performances from 3 songwriters. You can expect great music, great questions, and great shared information.
The included poster is from last year's event. Stay tuned for info on this year's panel.
8 a.m. in Pioneer Park by the Old School House, courtesy of the Central Saanich Lions. Always great food!
The parade starts at Bayside Middle School at 10 a.m., heads down Wallace Drive and turns up West Saanich Rd, past the festival site and ends at the Roundabout. at the bottom of this page.
We begin at 11 with an traditional Opening Prayer by an elder from the Tsartlip Nation to welcome us and start our festival. Representatives from our municipal, provincial and federal governments will be on hand as well.
