Featured Community Event
The Squamish Wind Festival
The Squamish Wind Festival was established in 2014 as a community arts event hosted by the Squamish Arts Council. Since then the festival has grown to engage and work with artists from the Sea to Sky Corridor and the Province. Music, art, culture and community are the core values brought to life for this event with the objective of inspiring the artist in everyone who attends.
To produce a free community event that highlights arts and culture in Squamish and creates an environment where everyone feels welcomed to participate. My services included sponsorship recruitment, event production, budget management, event scheduling and project consulting.
Decreased event expenses from 2016-2017 by over 100% while doubling the attendance of the community movie night. From 2017-2018 the focus remained on growth and to bring the festival up to another level. By maintaining/creating new strategic partnerships and increased funding the festival was able to increase attendance by 30% and become one of the largest free festivals in the Squamish community.
Shannon and the Garibaldi Events team go above and beyond! We absolutely cannot recommend them more for event planning and management. They took our event to the next level and were without a doubt an integral part of its success. Shannon is wonderful to work with, highly professional, and has a keen eye for organization and details.
