Dance for the Rainforest!

 

Rave for the Rainforest and Equinox Party.

September 22 – September 23
(Sept 22 at 7 PM to Sep 23 at 5 AM)

At the Sunset Room; 401 Herald St, Victoria, British Columbia V8T 4R4

Join us and dance through the night, from dusk to dawn, on the Autumn equinox at the Sunset Room to celebrate and raise awareness and funds to help save some of the last and most magnificent temperate rainforests in the world in the heart of the Walbran Valley ( unceded Pacheedaht territory), south Vancouver Island.

Victoria-born and Bali-based DJ Alex Joy ( Joy Collective and Rainforest Pavillion, a fusion of electronic dance music and ecological conservation culture) and an exciting line up of home town heroes including Mr Moe, J-Feud and Jon Galssey and DJS Daniel Pierce and Tada Hozuma, will serve up the music to keep you dancing all night long.

This event is happening on the territory of the Lekwungen peoples of the Songhees and Esquimault nations and is supporting the work of the Friends of Carmanah Walbran, a local Victoria, 100% volunteer-based collective working to protect and providing public access to the threatened heart of the Walbran valley, a rare world-class ecological heritage of ancient temperate rainforest, 3.5 hours drive from downtown Victoria.
