Welcome to the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society's 2015 Season!
The Society has some wonderful musical experiences planned for Chemainus this year, making the most of its great locations at Waterwheel Park and St. Michael's Hall -- both right in the heart of Chemainus.
Our indoor "Music in the Hall" is your source for great music this winter at St. Michael's Hall and Chemainus United. Enjoy concerts by regionally and nationally acclaimed performers plus our monthly Open Mic Nights.
The "Music in the Park" series continues with music of different genres every Tuesday evening from July 7th, right through until the final show of the summer on August 25th.
During the season, you'll experience jazz, bluegrass, blues, rock, pop and many other formats. Follow our menu on the top of this page for full details of the series.
We're also hosting a number of fabulous festivals this summer starting with the Rockabilly Festival on July 11th. Then on July 18 and 19 you'll be able to experience two days of some of the very best in bluegrass when the Chemainus Bluegrass Festival comes back for its fifth edition. The following Saturday July 25, we present the Velvet Rut Express Fest featuring performers from many backgrounds playing a wide variety of genres.
On August 7th and 8th our popular Accordion Days will be back featuring many wonderful accordion friends. Then on August 22nd we can look forward to the return of the Chemainus Jazz Festival. Once again, crowds will be delighted by a full day of top-quality Jazz in the Park.
It will be a great year -- don't miss any of it!
