Join us for the 2018 Vancouver International Guitar Festival
Guitar builders, players, collectors and aficionados will gather in Vancouver next August for two days of live music, master classes, special events and the opportunity for the public to see, hear and play some of the world’s finest handmade stringed instruments.
VIGF is an international showcase celebrating the art and craft of contemporary guitar making, both acoustic and electric. Master luthiers (acoustic instrument makers) will be available for one-on-one discussions and demos. All instruments on exhibit will be available for purchase and custom commissions welcome. Come and order your dream guitar!
The Vancouver International Guitar Festival presents the work of master luthiers from Canada, United States, and around the world. Electrics, acoustics, ukuleles and basses will be on display—from the most avant-garde to the staunchly traditional. Exhibiting luthiers will be present at their booths to provide information about their creative work. In addition, VIGF will host a select number of vendors from the trade, including tonewood suppliers, guitar parts manufactures and music retailers.
Vancouver international Guitar festival is the only event of its kind in Western Canada. Join us for this special opportunity to see, hear and play some the world’s finest handmade stringed instruments.
