A new entertainment festival is coming to Ladner’s Paterson Park this September.

Barnside Harvest Festival is set for Sept. 15 to 17 celebrating Delta’s harvest with music, markets, food and fun and farm fresh beer.

The main stage will feature three days of live music including The Sheepdogs, 54-40, The Roadhammers, Dear Rouge, The Zolas, Warren Dean Flandez, Take it to the Limit, Eagle Ex-Machina and many more.

The Market Stage will include some of the best emerging artists in the region including Raincity, Jordan Klassen, Kytami, Nette, Cam Blake and more.

Sunday will include a dog-friendly theme with the Paw Pals Electric Picnic! Paterson Park is renowned for dogs and dog walkers, so festival patrons will be invited to bring their dogs for a fun Sunday afternoon in the park. Programming will include agility areas, musical mats and a pet parade, with the music vibe provided by Larry Hennessey (JACK Up the 80’s) spinning vinyl classics, DJ Bobby James with live percussion and Goodspin.


There will also be a charity barbecue to benefit the Delta Firefighters Charitable Society, a large corn roast, food trucks and many tasty treats.

The Farm & Artisan Market will feature some of the region’s best artisans and crafters, along with huge tents featuring locally grown produce.

Kids will love the games and activities in the Family Farm Zone.
