Thank you!

A huge thank you to all of the sponsors, community partners, performers, volunteers, participants and festival goers for a phenomenal 25th Silver Anniversary Celebration.  It was a fantastic year all around and we couldn't have done it without you all.  Check out the picutres below (or check the Gallery page for larger images).  Many thanks to our volunteer photographers, E. Litti Birker, Corinne Boback, Melissa Johnson, Larry Kelly and Casey Mons for the amazing images they captured.

 

Please share your favourite memories and pictures on our Facebook page.

June 2 ... Meet Angela Brown and the Nylon Zoo

Angela Brown (also known as the Taa Daa Lady in some circles) brings the magic of dress up, imagination and story telling to the Festival again this year.  Bright, colourful and creative, be sure to join Angela and the Nylon Zoo on both days of the Festival - you will find her perched on the berm near Island Stage.

And while you are there, also check out a new addition to the Festival this year: Literacy in the Environment's Story Walk. Share the gift of a story with your child and enjoy a peaceful stroll through the enchanted forest near Island Stage.

June 1 ... Countdown to the Festival!

We promised to reveal some of the great performers and experiences you can look forward to at the 25th Silver Anniversary edition of the Festival and over the next 12 days that's exactly what we will do.

This year's Festival will feature some returning favourites.  Unfortunately we can't bring back everyone as there have been WAY too many fantastic experiences over the past 25 years (plus we would need a lot more silver in our budget for that to be possible:)   But one of our favourites for sure in the past eight years has been Dan the Balloon Man.  And no, it isn't because he spoils me with fabulous looks each year - it is because he works SO hard to meet the overwhelming demand from all the kids for his incredible creations.  People scour the site looking for him, hoping to get one of his masterpieces.  

He keeps everyone entertained as he works his magic twisting balloons.  This year on Friday you can even take in his stage show at 10 am on the Avalon Beach Stage. The rest of the festival he will be roaming and twisting (and here is your secret hint for when you:  one of his favourite hang outs is near Harmony Bridge). 
Dan is an incredible guy to work with and a supreme artist when it comes to balloon artwork. Meet Dan Thiel ... aka Dan the Balloon Man.   www.dantheballoonman.ca
