Innovative. Inclusive. Inspiring.
The Eighth Annual Gabriola Theatre Festival will have it all this August on beautiful Gabriola Island! Eight exciting main stage productions. A FREE Outdoor Performance Stage. A lively Artisans Avenue. A Human Library. Pancake Breakfasts. A Fashion Show. A Creative Kids Corner. A Creativity Workshop. And to kick off the whole shebang—a Toga Party!
The Gabriola Theatre Festival has made a name for itself in the Canadian theatre scene, attracting world-class productions to this little island on the west coast. Why might this be? For one, Gabriola Island has the sixth highest concentration of artists in the workforce in Canada (Hill Strategies Report, 2011). With an island full of artists comes appreciation for art in all its forms! Theatre practitioners are warmly welcomed to the beautiful Isle of the Arts, performing to knowledgeable and enthusiastic audiences, visiting local beaches and businesses, and enjoying the Gulf Island vibe. Some have even come back five years in a row!
Come up to Gabriola Island for this super, sunny weekend! Join us from August 18 to 21 for one of the best summer festivals around.
The Gabriola Arts Council is inviting vendors and exhibitors of all kinds to participate in the two-day Street Art (Saturday) and Street Fair (Sunday) on Lockinvar Lane during the 2016 Gabriola Theatre Festival, August 20 and 21, 2016.
