Events? - Yes, there are many! - Come in February and snag a front-row seat at readings and workshops by celebrated authors at the island's very own Literary Festival. On Canada Day (July 1st) catch the North Island Jamboree, a wonderful example of "old-time" Galiano. During the BC Day long-weekend (first weekend of August ), many galleries and private homes on Galiano host a special Art Show which features new work made especially for this event. And as well, our Island’s wonderful annual  Fiesta is on that first Saturday in August, the Wine Festival is mid-August and the celebrated Blackberry Festival is always the first Saturday in October, during Canada's Thanksgiving celebrations.

Make a Movie! - Budding filmmakers flock to our Island's award-winning Gulf Islands Film & TV School, which offers one- and two-week programs to students of all ages. From June through September, everyone can enjoy free Saturday screenings of student films each week.

Anyone interested in celebrating the Gulf Islands with us, please contact Lou at lkeating1956@gmail.com. (Don't worry if I don't reply right away - I'm out of the country until the end of March.)
