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 below.
The construction of the Brentwood Bay Performance Stage is well underway and proceeding on schedule for a June 2018 opening.Concrete foundations and walls were poured in November, then the stage area was backfilled and the stage floor was poured in December.The backstage/storage room was constructed in January and the huge timber beams were put on place on February 2, 2018.
The next steps will be installing the wood roof decking and then the sheet metal roof. The walls of the backstage will then be covered in K2 Natural Stone, quarried right here on Vancouver Island.Finally the electrical outlets and lighting will be installed.
