Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival:

Bard on the Beach is Western Canada’s leading professional Shakespeare Festival, located close to Vancouver’s downtown core in Vanier Park. Its mission is to perform, explore and celebrate the genius of William Shakespeare. Its vision is to create an enduring contribution to the cultural fabric of the community, as an inspiring centre of Shakespeare performance, education and understanding.

Proceeds from the Bacchanalia Gala go to support Bard’s artistic and educational endeavours. Since its inception in 1979, the Wine Festival has raised over $8.1 million for the arts. A tax receipt is issued for a portion of each Gala ticket purchased.

"One of the reasons the Wine Festival is so popular, is it's a wine education class under the sails" - Terry David Mulligan
