Edge of the World Music Festival (EOTW) is 3-day music festival (Friday/Saturday/Sunday) August 9, 10, & 11 and features a mix of local artists and visiting artists. EOTW is the only festival of its kind on Haida Gwaii, and one of a handful on the northern British Columbia. Three days of song, dance, and celebration brings together the community of islanders, along with our visitors from across BC and Canada.

EOTW reaches beyond BC, inviting performers and guests from off island to come and enjoy local, regional, and national musical talent. EOTW assists in promoting the cultural health of all of the communities on Haida Gwaii and fosters the spirit of cooperation, cultural understanding and trust by promoting the concept of the Islands as the community; we bring together people of all ages from all the islands' communities to celebrate in the common language of music. EOTW also assists in the promotion of education and artistic expression in the communities of Haida Gwaii and with the Haida culture.
