Let’s start with Qualicum. The opening event on Friday, August 30 is a blockbuster dance with two bands: the blues rock group, Auntie Kate and the Uncles of Funk, and the Cajon ensemble, Bijuox du Bayou. 

On Saturday afternoon, bring a lawn chair and relax as gypsy jazz trio String Fever, folk duo Zach and Jim, and vocalist Sylvia Humble entertain you at a free matinee in Heard Square sponsored by the Mulberry Bush Bookstore and the Qualicum Bakery and Cafe.

Stay in town for the rousing kitchen party that evening with Victoria Celtic band, Hounds of Cuchulain.

Not included in this festival pass is Sunday night's special concert by Blue Moon Marquee, fresh off multiple Maple Blues awards and a Juno for their latest album, “Scream, Holler & Howl”.

Parksville Events

Parksville's first show is on the following Friday, September 6. It's a feature presentation of well-loved songs from singer songwriter Paul Simon's extensive playlist. "Still Crazy" presents top BC musicians Helen Austin, Doug Cox, Tom and Kalissa Landa, and Mick Sherlock interpreting their personal favourites. 

"Party on the Plaza" the next afternoon showcases talented young Vancouver Island artists. You'll be introduced to Parksville’s DJ Connor, Nanaimo blues rockers the James Vickers Band, and Duncan singer songwriter Malakai - all thanks to the Parksville Downtown Business Association.

The festival winds up at the MAC with a Saturday evening performance of "Once Upon a Fiddle" performed by storyteller Rachel Dunstan Muller accompanied by violinist Nicholas Ross. This unique presentation is sponsored by the Oceanside Community Arts Council.
