Who are we?

Claire & Kelsey! We've spent our first very long, very cold winter at our new home we call Old Dogwood on Mayne Island, dreaming  up our first community project… and we're super excited to announce the first annual all-ages, family-friendly Tiny Tiny Cozy Fest! (woohoo!)


Tiny Tiny Cozy Fest is a new music & arts festival on Mayne Island centring artists of colour, women, LGBTQ, and two-spirit people. The Fest connect arts, culture, and nature-based learning with the intention of making urban and rural exchanges more accessible. Throughout the weekend of May 27-28, there will be music, poetry and taiko performances; dance, singing, lyrics writing, beat-making, paper recycling and musical screaming workshops taking place all along Felix Jack Rd between Emma & Felix Jack Park up to the Mayne Island Community Centre!

We're located on the unceded Coast Salish territories of the Lekwungen, Snaw-Naw-As (Nanoose), Scia-new (Cheanuh), T'Sou-ke, Malahat, WSÀNEC (Pauquachin, Tsawout, Tsartlip, Tseycum), Tsawwassen, and the Hul'qumi'num Mustimuhw (Hul'qumi'num speaking people) including Stz'uminus (Chemainus), Cowichan, Halalt, Lake Cowichan, Lyackson, and Penelakut.

What's the Money For?

We want to keep the fest as financially accessible and all-age friendly as we can, so we are selling tickets at sliding scale ($25-50 includes a Saturday night sleepover at Old Dogwood) and making it free for everyone under 18 years old.

This campaign is to help pay for festival costs including artists' travel costs & honorariums, space rentals, sound equipment, lighting, drinking water, snax, tea, coffee, & garbage clean up. We are also looking into booking ASL (American Sign Language) interpreters, which is totally dependent on whether we have the funds - so help us raise money so we can make the event more accessible! If we raise extra monies, it will all go into next year's fest :)


Thanks for helping us make this happen! And big big love to all the artists, facilitators and volunteers for making this possible. Seriously couldn't do it without you all!!
