News: Rock of The Woods Going on Hiatus


In statement made Monday February 6 on their Facebook Page, the Rock of The Woods Music Festival has announced a “hiatus to reflect on its founding goals and evaluate support for music and cultural festivals in the Cowichan Valley.”

Festival Director Dave Bain goes on to say “After six years of giving our all to the festival we feel it is time to take a break and look at how Rock of the Woods can move ahead.”

Rock of The Woods has been held in the Cowichan Valley since 2010. After four years of changing permit processes, the festival received approval in January of 2016 for a three year permit to allow the music festival to remain in the Cowichan Valley until 2018.
