The Hornby Festival has been operating successfully for 35 years, delivering magic to Hornby Island every summer and a little beyond!  We are a registered charitable non-profit run by a great Board of Directors and a small staff team. We are artistically driven; focused on supporting both artists and our audiences; and are fiscally conservative. We thank our festival goers, the community, and off-island funders for ensuring that the success of the Festival continues…. we hope for decades to come!
