Mainstage 2016 will be held at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre from July 2 – 9th.

We no longer have a separate webpage for Mainstage so details are available here and under the Destination Mainstage tab.

The OKZ has scheduled an LED Stage Lighting workshop for May 28th from 2 – 4 PM at the Frank Venables Theatre, host for the OKZ festival that week.   If you would like to attend please email Nathan at nlinders@eastlink.ca

The seminar will be repeated at Mainstage, but since not everyone goes to Mainstage you may want to see it at your zone. Of course, some zones overlap their festivals so it may not be possible to attend all zones.


The Okanagan Zone has announced dates and participating clubs for the 2016 Zone Festival. More information including important accommodation recommendations click here – OKZ Festival.
