Feel like you have to choose between going cruising and live music concerts, think again! This summer you have back to back weekend concerts in August to fill your concert needs. Start in Desolation Sound for the weekend of August 5th, head up through the rapids and sail to Shoal Bay and then start to head home and stop in Pender Harbour. So here’s the deal:
August 5th – Dinghy Concert in Prideaux Haven
This event has been growing in popularity and 2017 marks the 5th consecutive year. Prideaux Haven, or also commonly referred to as the “downtown” of Desolation Sound is not a huge anchorage. Heading up early to secure anchorage in and around Prideaux Haven would be advised, or anchoring a little further away and heading over in a tender is also a great option. Go here for more info.
August 12th – Music Festival at Shoal Bay
This is a fun music festival combining both amateur and professional musicians in a lovely venue. Spend Saturday relaxing to great music and on Sunday take a hike to the old Goldmine. Go here for more info.
August 18th to 20th Pender Harbour Chamber of Commerce Music Festival
Wind down your cruising and relax with three days of classical music in Pender Harbour. Go here for more info.
Some great options to fully experience the summer cruising lifestyle in the pacific northwest!
