Deep Cove Daze is a local community arts festival that occurs on the last Sunday of August in Panorama Park with entertainment on the waterfront mainstage and amphitheatre sidestage, a midway of rides for kids, a food court, a beer gardens, an artisan alley, a sponsor area and various events such as a kids parade to open the day, The DCM Idol contest sponsored by Deep Cove Music and DCM Studios and a cardboard kayak contest sponsored by Deep Cove Canoe & Kayak.
Deep Cove Daze has been a community event dating back to the turn of the century when Deep Cove was first occupied by today’s society. There were events such as a community dance, a diving/ costume contest, canoe jousting and more.
Tyler Pearson, founder and owner of Deep Cove Music, saw the need for a governing body to help obtain funding and organize the event after volunteering to help with the event in the summer of 1997. In 1998 he took over the then dormant MUSART Cultural Society and reinstated it into good standing as a not for profit society and applied for funding. MUSART was successful with some funding as was able to take over the coordination of the Deep Cove Daze community arts festival in the summer of 1998 which was produced by Jeff Maynard and Tyler Pearson.
