Victoria Jazz Society - Blues Bash - JazzFest Victoria BC Canada

The Victoria Jazz Society is a professional arts organization committed to presenting the highest quality of jazz possible to our community, by presenting music in performance, with acclaimed musicians.
Since 1981, through its innovative artistic vision, the VJS has attracted thousands of leading artists from around the world to perform in Victoria.
Hundreds of thousands of fans have enjoyed many outstanding festival and non-festival performances that have featured the full spectrum of jazz and improvised music - from the traditional and mainstream, to the avant-garde, including worldbeat and the blues.
The Victoria Jazz Society's primary activity is to produce two major multi-day music festivals in the summer, JazzFest International and the Vancouver Island Blues Bash, as well as a series of concerts from September to May, all featuring international, national and regional jazz artists.
Since 1985, the highlight of the VJS program year has been the production and presentation of JazzFest International, an annual event that begins at the end of June, featuring over 70 individual paid and free performances and workshops in downtown Victoria.
JazzFest International presents all genres of jazz, blues and worldbeat music, and has grown into a ten-day festival that attracts over 300 musicians and is attended by over 35,000 people from Greater Victoria, Vancouver Island, and around the world.
The Vancouver Island Blues Bash, held annually over the Labour Day weekend since 1995, features festival performances by regional, national and international artists, and has become one of Victoria's most popular outdoor events.
The Blues Bash mainstage, situated in Victoria's Inner Harbour, has become a major showcase for both established and emerging blues and R & B performers.

Victoria Dragon Boat Festival

Twice a week Jen Loo closes her sponsorship files early, changes into paddling gear, and leaves the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival office with a cheerful wave.
As a paddler and Festival staff member, Loo often makes very specific suggestions about shaping the event to fit paddlers' needs and desires better.
A number of the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival Society's staff, key volunteers, and Board Directors are paddlers, and all have used their on-water experience to make the Festival more enjoyable for their paddling peers and competitors.
He considers himself representative of most Festival participants.
"So I think about what I want to buy at a Festival, and what I want to see when I wander around the site."
Wandering the site - any Festival site - is Mike Fox's idea of a holiday.
Fox, the Festival's Site Manager, paddles widely with what he calls his "old farts team."
But Fox is as cunning as, well, his namesake.
"Being a paddler gives me a chance to see how every other significant festival in BC is run," Fox says.
Over the years, Fox has applied his casual reconnaissance to make the Victoria Festival site safer, more comfortable, and more intelligently planned.
Jeff Chow, a Festival Director and past Chair, agrees that paddling the Festival circuit helps the Board plan a better event.
That's what we want," says Jeff, only slightly tongue-in-cheek.
A paddler since 2001, Chow is scrupulous about details and the bigger picture, trying to ensure the Festival hits the right tone of celebratory fun.
