This coming year, 2016, marks the 67th annual Cowichan Music Festival.

If you wish to take part, the deadline for entries is Saturday, Dec. 5.

To find out which events you’d like to enter, the music festival syllabus is online at and also available for purchase in hard copy from Duncan Music at a cost of $5 each.

The actual dates of competition are from Feb. 9 to 29 and the Highlights Concerts are March 2 and March 5 both in the Cowichan Theatre.

But, in order to join the fun, you need to enter by this weekend, so if that paperwork is just waiting there, or if you’ve forgotten, you’ve got just a few days to get it in.
