On April 27 and 28, 2018, Nanaimo will host the Evergreen District's Division 1 Barbershop contest.  This exciting event will bring 250 barbershoppers and their friends from BC and Washington State to the city. 

On Friday night (6:30 PM) at the Port Theatre, the Division's best quartets will compete for the right to attend the District contest later in 2018; while on Saturday morning (10 AM), the choruses will compete; and on Saturday evening (7 PM) the "Show of Champions" will feature the best of the weekend's barbershop performances, with special guests as well.  And after the "Show of Champions" there will be a gala reception and "Afterglow" at the nearby Dorchester Hotel.

As well as the traditional male-only quartet and chorus contests, we will be inviting mixed quartets and choruses to compete. Registration packages will be available for pick-up at the registration desk in the Port Theatre foyer on Friday, April 27, from 3 PM - 6:30 PM, and on Saturday, April 28, from 8 AM - 10 AM.

All events are open to members of the public. We encourage anyone with an interest in high-quality 'a cappella' singing to come along and enjoy the contests and the show.
