Creekside Concert 2023

Hi Friends,

Creekside Concerts are back for a fifth summer and we are excited to host our only concert of the season on Friday, July 21st along Bowker Creek Walkway in Oak Bay. (The rain date for the event is Saturday, July 22nd.)

Lekwungen welcome by TEALIYE/Brianna Bear
Poetry by Sharon Sunhye Lee
Storytelling and song by Carolyn Knight
Dance by Constance Cook with Kayla Henry & Sarah Hutton
Music by Dilly Cooner and The Blackwood Two

There will also be a special singing workshop, facilitated by Nēlé, beside the creek at 6 pm. More details and registration link coming soon!

The event will take place in the rectangular green space just north of the Bowker Creek Walkway and east of Oak Bay High School, between Armstrong Avenue and Hampshire Road.

Accessibility information: The site of the concert can be accessed via the Bowker Creek Walkway from either the Armstrong Avenue turn-around or Hampshire Road. From the walkway it is approximately 60 metres along uneven grass to where the concert will be taking place. If you require assistance with accessibility, please contact us and we will do our best to help.

We encourage attendees to walk, cycle or take public transit to the event. The closest bus stop is on Monterey Avenue, just south of the Bowker Creek Walkway (bus route #2).
