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.

25th Annual Galiano Wine Festival
Date: 
August 12,
1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Venue: Lion's Field on Burrill Rd, right next to the Galiano Health Clinic

It is a fun event for a worthwhile cause - to raise money to cover operating costs of the Galiano Health Clinic. The festival takes place at the Lions Field, which is a pleasant 20 minute walk from the ferry and Sturdies Bay village.

Informal, fun and relaxing, the wine and beer tasting festival is an open air event that is a wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon with old and new friends. At $45 a ticket, it is great value. The price of the entrance fee includes unlimited tasting, a crested crystal wine glass, fresh-made finger food, a silent auction and entertainment.

We will have some Galiano musicians playing to accompany our friendly conversation. There is plenty of room to move around and lots of cool places to relax. You’ll have plenty of time to talk with the wine and beer merchants and makers, and no long wait for wine and beer you wish to taste.

The Galiano Island Bookstore booth provides an opportunity to browse for wine and food related books at your leisure. This year a variety of local artists will show and sell their original artwork. Galiano Coffee will be there again with their fabulous locally roasted beans.

All wine and beer offered for sampling are affordable, including many wonderful British Columbia boutique wines found at the Galiano Garage and the Corner Store both near the ferry terminal.

WE ARE ALSO THRILLED TO ONCE AGAIN HAVE A POP UP BEER AND WINE SHOP ON SITE HOSTED BY THE FINE FOLKS AT METRO SPECIALTY LIQUOR STORES! TASTE, LOVE, PURCHASE!
