    About Us

    The best in bluegrass and old-time music
    The Cowichan Valley Bluegrass Festival is an all-ages family-friendly festival showcasing the best in bluegrass and old-time music. We acknowledge that we operate on the traditional land of the Ts’uubaa-asatx Nation, who have lived around the shores of Cowichan Lake for millennia. The English translation of the name Ts’uubaa-asatx is “People of the Lake.”

    With unlimited camping and 5,800 square feet of covered performance area, we provide rain-or-shine comfort nestled in a cozy western town setting at the Laketown Ranch Music Park near Lake Cowichan, centrally located on Vancouver Island. We have additional tents for instrument workshops and acoustic jam sessions and our signature Saturday Night Square Dance. Our venue also has ample day parking and accessibility for those with mobility challenges. Children, youth and teens under 18 are FREE when accompanied by an adult!

    We are especially proud of our community outreach efforts including a series of square dance workshops in local schools just prior to the festival. This event, where we have engaged as many a 600 students in one two-day period, is a tradition that we continue in the Lake Cowichan area. This year, we expect to surpass 2,000 the number of children reached since the program’s inception.

    Nestled amid the high hills of the beautiful Cowichan Valley, the site is close to the numerous amenities of the area including wineries, lakes, hiking, cycling, house boating and all that the gorgeous region has to offer.

    We have a strong partnership with the Victoria Bluegrass As
