Hornby Festival (July 28 to Aug. 6) brings features top entertainment

The Hornby Festival brings another incredible lineup to Hornby Island from July 28 to Aug. 6.

Experience Canada’s best music (from world to folk/roots to classical to indie pop), theatre, visual arts and literary readings amidst the spectacular beauty of Hornby Island.

The Hornby Festival brings an incredible world-class lineup to multiple breathtaking stages. Enjoy the beauty of the outdoor venue at The Farm, with fields rolling down to the sea, the charm of the Hornby Island Community Hall, and the view over the Lambert Channel from Orchard House where we will host the one-day mini-writers’ festival. Also, take in the short free performances that take our world-class musician to unusual outdoor venues all over the island.

Bring the family to the farm (July 29 to Aug. 2) to take in an outdoor evening concert/dance party, watch the moon rise, and watch the kids run down the field to the ocean.

Take the kids to Classical Kids, our packed to the rafters kids events, to a hoe down at The Farm, to First Nations story telling by Michael Kusugak or to an art workshop with Rae Mate. You can also check out all the music Live On Air outside CHFR at Joe King Park.

With the 2016 multiple award-winning lineup, you will experience world rhythms with the BC World Music Collective (BC) and Ayrad (QB), folk/roots with The Bills (BC), indie/pop with Bellflower (QB), pop/folk with Shred Kelly (BC), classical with The Cecilia String Quartet (ON) and Stanislav Khristenko (Ukraine). Don’t forget the hilarious one-man show Hello Baby with Lucas Myers about his journey into fatherhood.

New this year, the event has a mini-writers festival on Aug. 6 bringing the best in Canadian literature to Hornby Island. Authors include the winner of this year’s Canada Reads award, Lawrence Hill, author of The Book of Negros and The Illegal.
