Music isn’t the only thing going on at the Hyde Creek Music Festival. There will be a kid’s activity zone from noon to 5:00 p.m., a beer garden for the adults to enjoy, and a large number of crafters and food vendors to check out. There will also be a free shuttle bus service running from IGA in Port McNeill straight to the festival.


There will hopefully be a silent auction held during the festival where you can come out and bid on items of your choosing that were donated from local businesses. Donation of items is still needed to make this become a reality. Contact Gord Oppen at 780-964-7422 or go to the festival’s website at hydecreekmusicfest.weebly.com.


Hyde Creek Music Festival Team stills need volunteers to help make the music festival become a reality. If you would like to donate your time to a great cause, contact Gord Oppen at 780-964-7422 or check out the festival’s website at hydecreekmusicfest.weebly.com. or its Facebook and Instagram. There will be a final volunteer meeting held at the Hyde Creek hall on Aug. 15 at 7:00 p.m. Every volunteer gets a free ticket and a t-shirt.


The goal of the music festival is to bring together neighbours and to build a strong sense of community in Hyde Creek and Port McNeill, as well as to raise funds to upgrade the community’s playground and sports field. Thanks to last year’s festival, the playground has already had it’s first upgrade with brand new equipment!
