YES! Off the Grid Festival at Fort Rodd Hill

May 24, 2013

Victoria, B.C. – Walk, bike, transit or carpool to Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites on Friday, May 24th from 4 to 7:30pm to enjoy a FREE all-ages community celebration for conservation.

It’s YesBC’s 3rd annual Off the Grid Festival, fusing music with a strong message about getting back into nature, learning what each of us can do to help build a cool local culture of conservation.

Zerbin headlines the festival. The band has been enjoying a growing list of television and Hollywood movie credits, a multi award-winning debut album and two North American tours that have had them sharing the stage with bands such as AWOLNATION, Fun and The Flaming Lips.

Supporting Zerbin on a mainstage powered by clean, renewable energy will be Mike and Keith from Quoia and two-time Vancouver Island Music Awards nominee, Teagan Johnston. Belmont Secondary School duo Garth & The Talent will round out the music performed with a stunning backdrop of Fisgard Lighthouse, Canada’s oldest west coast lighthouse.

Two-time Vancouver Island Music Award nominee Teagan Johnston will open this year’s Off the Grid Festival.

The Off the Grid Festival also includes food trucks, group exhibits and memorable Parks Canada experiences, from native habitat restoration and First Nations history and culture, to glimpses back into Canada’s military and maritime history.

The Langford Trolley will provide a free shuttle bus service from the Juan de Fuca Park and Ride at Island Highway and Ocean Blvd, so it’s easy to bring the family for a relaxed afternoon at a spectacular local destination.
