Community Initiatives

Tall Tree Festival Society was established in 2010 with a mandate to help promote cultural growth through arts, festivals, and community events and initiatives.

Since 2009 The Society has established and maintained two music festivals (Song and Surf and Tall Tree Music Festival) that take place in the San Juan Valley in the remote, under served communities of Pacheedaht (First Nation) and Port Renfrew.

A primary goal of these events is providing a platform for emerging artists on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and Canada and inspiring a passion for music, creativity, and community.

Along with the music program Tall Tree has also worked with community members to revitalize the local hiking trail system, worked with Outward Bound Canada with their community programs, started our very own community initiative, the Make Music Now Program, and have supported our friends at The Ancient Forest Alliance with their efforts for tall tree justice.
