Aboriginal Culture Festival

The Aboriginal Tourism Association of BC is pleased to be the driving force behind the Aboriginal Cultural Festival, showcasing local Aboriginal cultures from British Columbia and hosted in partnership with the Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations.

This year's Aboriginal Cultural Festival—taking place from Friday, June 16 to Sunday, June 18, 2017—will see more than 25 performers grace the main stage, celebrating the diverse traditional and modern cultures of Nations from across British Columbia.

In addition to the main stage performances, the Aboriginal Cultural Festival will feature an Authentic Indigenous Arts Marketplace and an outdoor dining area where visitors can sample and purchase a wide variety of traditional and modern fare including West Coast clam chowder, fry-bread, and BBQ sockeye salmon.
