Woodstove Festival deeply values the community that we are privileged to host our event in and we ask that you love, care, and respect the people and the place the way we do.

Cumberland has a vast history which includes Japanese, Chinese, black, white, and preeminently multiple indigineous communities. We ask that you honour both the people and the landmarks that have been care taken for throughout time. Vist K’omoks First Nation or the Cumberland Museum for more information or tours that take place in our community.

Please leave any MOOP (Matter Out of Place) items at home. These include glitter, sequins, synthetic feathers, & other flinder items, micro-garbage, and non-biodegradable products. Don’t litter!
