Gorgeous summer weather, fantastic country music all in the beautiful Comox Valley, BC—yes please! If you are blessed enough to live on or near Vancouver Island or if you have been looking for a reason to plan a special getaway here than the Sunfest Country Music Festival is a summer highlight event that you don’t want to miss. It’s coming July 31-August 3, 2014 and will take place at the Cowichan Exhibition Society Fair Grounds in Duncan, BC.
In addition to the incredible lineup that will draw hundreds out to sing, dance and hoot and holler, this festival is also one that “gives back,” adding to the reasons to make it a plan to attend. Over the last 11 years Sunfest has given back over $400,000.00 to a host of local charities and in 2013 alone proceeds of over $65,000.00 were donated to the Cowichan Exhibition Society, MS Society of Canada, Big Brothers and Sisters, Cowichan District Hospital Foundation, Duncan Kinsmen Club, Cowichan Valley Hospice Society, and many more. This great music festival actually started twelve years ago as a single-day concert to give local artists a chance to share their talent. Now it is a huge musical experience with world-class entertainment and the icing on the cake is that it just happens to take place in one of the most scenic spots in BC with Mount Prevost in the background.
