Waterwheel Park is hopping

Waterwheel Park is the place to go if you’re looking for summer entertainment in Chemainus

Waterwheel Park is the place to go if you’re looking for summer entertainment in Chemainus. Coming up: a bluegrass festival on July 18-19; the Velvet Rut Express Fest on July 25, featuring thirteen bands on two stages; Chemainus Accordion Days Aug. 7-8; a special concert by John Reischman and the Jaybirds Aug. 9; the Kidz ArtBeat Festival Aug. 15, featuring children’s music, dance, art, crafts and food; and the popular Chemainus Jazz Festival in the park Aug. 22.

And of course Tuesday evening concerts will continue throughout the summer, a great way to enjoy an evening in the park.

Full details at Admission to the events is by donation, however the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society reminds people that, particularly for the more expensive offerings, the amount of most donations is a fraction of what you would pay to see these performers on stage anywhere but Chemainus.
