Honk! represents a tradition of activist brass bands and drum lines coming together to build momentum for social change and to bring people from all over together. As long time participants of Honks! in Boston, Austin, Seattle and beyond, the Open Air Orchestra Society decided to throw our hat in the ring and host the first Canadian version of the festival. Come One, Come All!
The second annual HONK! BC is taking place on Friday, August 9 thru Sunday, August 11, 2018. The festival will take place at multiple venues throughout Vancouver!
