Abbotsford’s festival scene is a highlight of its cultural calendar. The annual Abbotsford International Airshow is a spectacle of aviation. It features a lineup of live music performances entertaining crowds throughout the event. The Berry Festival, another beloved event, celebrates the region’s rich agricultural heritage with live music, food vendors, and family-friendly activities.

Supporting Local Talent

Abbotsford is dedicated to nurturing its local music scene through numerous festivals and venues. These events are a fantastic way to discover new talent and support the vibrant local scene. For a city of this size, it appears very active in arts and culture. Here is a link to the city’s arts and culture section of their tourism website, which provides information about all the up-and-coming events.

Abbotsford was also home to Hedley, the famous rock band, Jonathan Monroe Craig (American-Canadian singer), Lyldoll (Canadian singer-songwriter), Brian Robert Doerksen (Canadian Christian singer-songwriter), and Victoria Eileen Elizabeth Duffield (Canadian singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress). I wouldn’t say their claim to fame is related to the piano per se, but the lineup of talent coming from Abbotsford is pretty impressive, and that’s not the entire list either.

This piano teacher spotlight goes to Ewa Telega. Her studio website looks fantastic, so if you have time to check it out, you should. The second piano teacher spotlight highlights Dina Pollock. Here is another private music teacher with a wonderful website worth looking at.
