The fourth annual Music Fest on Shoal Bay, East Thurlow Island takes place on Saturday August 6th from noon to dusk.

Musicians and bands (mostly folk and blues) come from B.C. and Washington to this free event on the lawns of Shoal Bay, which has a government wharf, small lodge and pub.

A line-up of bands such as Morning Star Trio from Victoria, Brownville Blues Band from Bremerton, WA and many individual musicians from Alert Bay, Quadra and Seattle guarantees a busy stage and fun afternoon and evening.

Members of the Daybreak Rotary Club are cooking an authentic giant seafood paella, as it was last enjoyed as Save-On Foods Paella at the Dancing and Tapas wheelchair fundraiser.

This paella on Shoal Bay will be sponsored by The Framing Post and the proceeds out of this musical and culinary feast are again going to the Wheelchair efforts of both Campbell River Rotary clubs.

Shoal Bay Lodge offers not only this free event for all ages, but also free camping for those who want to stay over night.

There is limited moorage available at their government wharf, but a water taxi service will also be available at special rates. For more information contact The Framing Post at 250-286-9717.
