The Cowichan Folk Guild is a registered non-profit society (since 1985) with a mandate to preserve and promote folk performing arts in the Cowichan Valley and on Vancouver Island. The Guild currently has over 150 members.
Through a monthly coffeehouse, a concert series in the Chapel at Providence Farm, concerts in many venues throughout the year, and the Annual Islands Folk Festival at Providence Farm, the CFG supports and promotes touring and local musicians. CFG showcases musicians who are relatively new to our audience, present new works and young musicians who are developing their careers. CFG also supports other local community events with donations of volunteers and equipment, and helps musicians connect with performance opportunities. For event details, visit Cowichan Folk Guild.
