Now It's Time to Get Ready for the 13th Annual BOLDFest 2017!

Thursday August 31st through Monday Evening September 4, 2017

Did you know? We're adding an extra day and evening (Monday)!                           Expect a very full and new program, including some of BOLDFest's past popular people and events!

They're coming back!!  QUEER AS FUNK, Vancouver's 8-piece Blues-MoTown-Funk Band played to a screaming, non-stop-dancing crowd this past September 2016.  We HAD to ask them back.  Get set for another night of dancing the night away in 2017!!

We're also excited to announce that HEATHER BISHOP is returning to BOLDFest where she performed a few years ago. Heather will be presenting a daytime workshop and ending the 13th Annual with a fabulous concert on Monday evening Sept 4. A well-known and accomplished musician and songwriter, Heather has numerous other skills and talents (see her website) and a long list of accomplishments, including being awarded the Order of Canada (2005), the Order of  Manitoba (2001), and an Honourary Doctorate of Laws (2011).

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT2017 is the last year the Coast Plaza Hotel will be open! The new owner will be  turning the site into condos and possibly a boutique hotel. This has been BOLDFest's "home" since its start in 2005. The staff are family to us, and to each other. We plan a big  celebration at BOLDFest 2017 to celebrate our long-standing friendship with the Coast Plaza's supportive and friendly staff. I know many of you will want to be there too, and especially those who haven't been to BOLDFest yet or who keep saying you want to return once again.  BOLDFEST will carry on! The search is on for a new location in 2018.

BOLD is a non-profit society registered in the Province of British Columbia Canada. Its  mission is to raise the visibility of older lesbians, and to provide a venue to meet lesbians and to share information and opportunities for learning, networking, and organizing. As importantly, BOLDFest creates a safe place for lesbians to  form life-long friendships, and relationships.  For the last eleven years, BOLDFest - the Bold Old(er) Lesbians & Dykes Conference and Gathering -  has attracted lesbians aged 40  up to 90's -  and much younger women - from across Canada, the US and Australia!

We convene at the Coast Plaza Hotel each year. The Coast Plaza is a friendly, gay-friendly and dog-friendly hotel in the heart of Vancouver's WestEnd Gaybourhood, with stunning views of mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
