Who We Are: Mission Statement

Since 2014, The Occidental has been the go-to place for delicious food and irresistible entertainment. As a family-run business, we know how to make every person feel welcomed. Our hospitality extends to our entire Quesnel community, and we’re committed to presenting the best music, theater, comedy shows, and food for your delight! Whether it’s date night, a fun family outing, or simply getting together with some friends, The Occidental is sure to be the first destination on your list.

The people behind The Occidental have music and entertainment in their blood. We have played an integral part in the Billy Barker Days society since the early 80s, and we spent 15 years putting on music festivals. The Occidental was born when we decided to bring the music festival experience to our hometown. Our venue and restaurant are standouts in the Quesnel area because we’re simply the best at what we do. Performers love taking our stage and visitors are eager to enjoy the shows we have to offer. From live music to burlesque, we have something for everyone!

Art, entertainment, and food are essential parts of any community. We’re honoured to add this important asset to the Quesnel area. We happily do the hard work required to foster local talent and bring in well-known names. Make us a regular part of your life, and we’ll add the richness that expands your mind and provides many fun evenings!
