Established in 1982...

... the Hornby Festival has grown into an acclaimed 10-day event. Our programming includes classical, jazz, world beat and traditional genres of music, modern dance, childrens' programming, theatre and spoken word. Join us for Festival 2014 as we continue to bring leading and innovative world class artists to our stages.

This 10-day world-class event has been named one of the top five festivals in Canada (Aeroplan Magazine) and one of the top 5 cultural events in BC (Macleans). We enjoy stunning performances against the beautiful backdrop of the mountains, ocean and rolling hayfields at Olsen Farm and at Hornby Island's charming Community Hall.
