Spandex, leopard print, big hair and more; whether you lived it, were born in it, or are just nostalgic for a time you never knew, join us for our 80s music celebration. Old-school dress isn’t a requirement, but if there was ever a time to bust out your acid wash or wear your sunglasses at night, this is it. There will be Old-school dress prizes!

Festival Nanaimo presents Back to the 80s Dance Party. Live music by Vancouver’s TRIPLE SHOT of Classic Rock, who will bring us their tributes to Heart, Pat Benatar and more. Keeping the dance hall days moving throughout the night is DJ Sassy Cass playing more of our favourite 80s pop songs. So wake me up before you go go and get your tickets to Nanaimo’s retro event of the year. Sponsored by PacRim Log Structures.
