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.

Fin de Fiesta Flamenco presents: "Liándola"
Date: 
September 17, 7:30 PM

South End Hall, Galiano Island

Acclaimed flamenco ensemble Fin de Fiesta brings Spanish inspiration to Canadian soil with their Summer/Fall 2017 Canadian Tour. Comprised of award-winning artists from Canada, France and Italy, the electrifying music and dance ensemble will bring stages nationwide to life with their spirited new production, LIÁNDOLA. 

The production takes its name from a popular Andalucian figure of speech used to describe boisterously unrestrained behaviour, a playful fearlessness that cannot be contained. Simply put, Liándola means taking an ordinary experience and making it extraordinary. 

In Liándola, the searing vocals of Alejandro Mendia (Noces Gitanes, France) are accompanied by the intricate guitar arpeggios of music director Dennis Duffin (Ventanas, Canada) and the haunting flute melodies of Lara Wong (Canada). Davide Sampaulo (Italy) holds down the rhythm on cahon. Acclaimed Vancouver-born dancer Deborah "La Caramelita" Dawson joins the group from her home base in Bordeaux, France. Dancer and artistic director Lia Grainger (Canada), brings the stage to life with fierce, sensual choreography and improvisation.

Ticket price: $22 advance/ $25 door
Available in person: Galiano Island Books
