One Wave Festival

Pacific Peoples' Partnership brings Pacific treats to Victoria

  • Sep. 14, 2011 8:00 p.m.

Three Victoria venues will host the 4th annual One Wave Festival, a showcase of art, dance, drumming and singing from Canadian and South Pacific Indigenous groups.

The festival is presented by the Pacific Peoples’ Partnership, which fosters connections between people from small South Pacific islands and Canada’s First Nations.

The event kicks off at noon on Saturday in Spirit Square with music and dance performances from a number of groups including the Little Ravens Dance Troupe and Pearls of the South Pacific. The shows are free of charge.

In the evening, Warless and Crude Cultura will perform at Lucky Bar. Tickets are $10 and are available at the Pacific People’s Partnership headquarters (620 View), Lyle’s Place or the Alcheringa Gallery.

After the show at Lucky Bar, people can head to Baja Surf Grill to listen to dj music, check out local art, and enjoy gourmet Pacific treats. M
