Bluegrass is back in 2022! The Chemainus Bluegrass Extravaganza will be back on July 16, 2022. It will be a wonderful time, all afternoon on July 16, 2022 at Waterwheel Park in Chemainus.
Backspin Band We've been busy hiring the bands. This year, we decided to make it an all-BC affair, and we've got some great music lined-up for you.

From the Lower Mainland, we're bringing the Backspin Band. They are a great group of musicians, featuring some well-known names in BC bluegrass - Jay Buckwold, Hugh Ellenwood, Colin Goldie, Randy Goulding and Kate Main.

You'll also see Powell River's wonderful group of bluegrassers - the Scout Mountain band. These folks have been to our festival before, and we know that you'll really enjoy their performance.

Another set of familiar faces will be Victoria's Clover Point Drifters. They haven't been here for a few years, so we thought it was time to bring them back - we know that you like them!

It wouldn't be the Chemainus Bluegrass Festival without Bluegrass Fever, who have been the host band at our Chemainus Festival since the 2011 edition.

This year, we're going to feature a great band that's new to our stage, The Replacements, from Nanaimo.

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! For those who like to arrive early to make sure of getting the perfect seat, we're starting the entertainment at 1:00 PM this year. Yes, there will be a bluegrass open-microphone session prior the main bill, so you can listen to some great bluegrass while you settle in for the day's fun.
