Announcing the Third Vancouver International Guitar Festival

With two successful festivals behind them, VIGF organizers are excited to announce they’ll be back June 29 - 30, 2019 with a three-day event combining the best of the 2017 and 2018 festivals, and more!

The 2019 festival will take place on Canada Day weekend, Vancouver’s busiest weekend of the year. Join guitar builders, players, collectors and aficionados for two days of live music, master classes, special events, and the opportunity to see, hear and play some of the world’s finest handmade stringed instruments.


Master Class Schedule Announced

The master-class series proved a highlight both the 2017 and 2018 festivals, and we've brought it back with even more talent on hand to guide and inspire guitarists of all levels and stylistic leanings. Anyone who wants to take their playing to the next level will relish the chance to get up close and personal with star performers from the US, Cuba and across Canada.


Luthier Workshop Schedule Announced

The 2019 festival will be held in the heart of Vancouver at Creekside Community Centre, a destination in itself with state-of-the-art amenities and award-winning design.
