5 Things You Need To Know About Sunfest 2015

These five items are directly from Sunfest Management and we’re just including them on our website as a courtesy to help keep people informed of some of the official rules so everyone can have some fun.

#1.  Waste Management and Waste Reduction

Sunfest Country Music Festival is a ‘What You Bring In, You Pack Out’ event.  Sunfest 2015 marks the first ever ‘Leave No Trace’ policy at the event, which will be strictly enforced during the festival. This means that you will be asked to utilize the proper recycling and waste receptacles provided by Sunfest. These will be located throughout the grounds as well as conveniently located in the campsite areas, making it easy to properly dispose of recyclables and waste.

#2.  Parking and Transportation

Please note that there will be no on-site single day parking spaces available (this excludes RV’s). This is to maximize parking for full event parking and to increase the flow of traffic both in and out of the event. 2015 will see increased traffic control coordination, with an orchestrated drop-off system for patrons and their gear.

Please note that campsite drop-offs will no longer be permitted in the campsite area, significantly reducing traffic, wait times and dust within the campsite access roads.

#3.  Water – Official Message

Access to free watering stations is a top priority at Sunfest to keep everyone hydrated and happy. Water stations will be located in the Concert Bowl, campsites and near the Marketplace. We believe everyone should have the fundamental right to free and accessible water.

Measure your rig! If you purchased a space for a 30ft RV and your RV measures in at 35ft, you will be moved to a site that can properly accommodate your vehicle and will be charged extra. To ensure that you camp with your group, please measure your vehicle beforehand.

Sunfest RV sites are issued based on RV size, with individual numbers assigned to each space. The camping area for 2015 has been organized on a site-by-site basis and certain RV’s if measured improperly simply cannot fit as they block fire lanes and roadways. Plan ahead and measure your rig.

The Big Boy’s Toys camping area is suitable for larger Travel Trailers and Motorhomes.

#5.  Sunfest Gives Back To The Community

Giving back to the community is part of our mandate, and will continue to be a strong gauge of the success of Sunfest Country Music Festival. It is so important in fact, that we have raised over $500,000, benefiting vital organizations in our community including: the Cowichan District Hospital Foundation, MS Society, Canadian Diabetes Association, Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Rotary Club of Duncan, Duncan Chamber of Commerce and nearly twenty elementary, middle and high schools in the area. From health care to education to athletics, we place a profound importance on our benevolence program, and hope that you do too.

Our legacy of community alliance spans over a decade, supporting and leveraging tangible benefits to nearly 40 charities, non-profits, schools, community partners and causes. Additionally, the annual event contributes to the economic, social, cultural and agricultural growth of the Cowichan Valley, having infused over 3 million dollars into local business through direct and indirect investment and employment opportunities since our inception.

The Cowichan Exhibition Grounds, who graciously play host to Sunfest, receive annual monetary donations totalling more than $100,000. We believe strongly in making lasting agricultural improvements to the grounds, field and facilities for years to come. Improving the agriculture land capability of the Exhibition land is our primary environmental initiative and lasting legacy.

Together, we are positively shaping the community of the Cowichan Valley, and that’s something we can all stand behind.
