WE ARE CELEBRATING 40 YEARS!! 1982-2022
The Hornby Festival is a 10-day annual, multi-genre festival known for its world-class performances. Come enjoy our beautiful community and culturally-rich island on the Salish Sea. We will be having special events to celebrate our 40th anniversary! FESTIVAL BROCHURE!
Previously known as the Olsen Farm or simply the farm, is the beautiful setting for our outdoor evening performances. The owners are extremely generous and we are forever grateful.

Live On the Lawn At CHFR 96.5
Come on down to Hornby Island's own community radio station CHFR (located at Joe King Park) to see a 20 minute performance by each artist/group playing at Rosemuir Farm that night.
We showcase an art show every year at the Hornby Island Community Hall. Last year we were honoured to have Cultural Knowledge Keeper and Pentlach Descendant, Elder Barb Whyte (Billy) lead the Coast Salish Connections Art Show. Hornby Arts and The Hornby Festival respectfully acknowledge the many Indigenous connections to Hornby Island.
