Workshop Full?  Join Our Waiting List!

If a workshop or event you chose is full, you can join our waiting list.

If someone cancels, or if we’re able to make more offerings available, we’ll get in touch.

You can join up to 3 workshop/ event waiting lists.

If you see a blank page after you submit, don’t panic – your form has made it through.

Register Early

Some of our workshops sell out quickly and some may be cancelled if there aren’t sufficient registrations.

Register early and bring your bubble!


Most workshop registrations include materials. Any exceptions will be noted in the course description.

Please check the website listing or ask in person during registration.

Refund Policy

If we cancel your workshop for any reason, we will refund your registration fee in full. 

Due to the small workshop size and the limited time between registration and the festival start, we won’t be able to offer refunds.

If you need to cancel, we are happy to help you transfer your registration to a friend or someone on our financial assistance/ inclusion list. We can also issue a tax reciept.

Arts Festival Inclusion

We believe art is awesome and we want everyone to have access to arts programming!

While we make every effort to offer programs at a cost that is accessible to most, sometimes that isn’t possible. Through the generous donations of our supporters we have funds available to help. 

It’s been proven that the arts not only stimulate community economic growth, but they can also improve quality of life.  Please become one of our generous supporters!


The campaign is simple. You let us know how much you would like to donate and we’ll make sure it gets into the hands of people who wouldn’t have been able to participate otherwise .

We want you at the festival!

We believe that lack of finances shouldn’t be a barrier to learning and enjoying the arts.

The Gabriola Arts Council, in partnership with our generous donors, has established a fund to help people who may not be able to afford regular ticket prices.

If you would like to attend an event or workshop and require financial assistance to do so, please apply now.
