SEAFEST 2014 has truly become a moveable feast. After an initial 10 years at Smelt Bay Park, and almost another 10 years at Squirrel Cove, the Oyster Festival is moving this year on May 17 to the Gorge Harbour Marina. Because it seems right to share, it is now Whaletown’s turn to be the site of this amazing day of enjoying good food and island life with neighbors and visitors.
We are deeply grateful to O’Byrne Taylor and the staff at Squirrel Cove General Store, who have been consistently helpful and accommodating of the crazy moments that happen when you fix a gourmet lunch on camp stoves for more than 500 people. And we are looking forward to an enlarged festival site, expanded facilities, off-road parking, and new views at Gorge Harbour Marina.
It is always true that while change can bring uncertainty, it also brings opportunity. We apologize to all those Squirrel Cove residents, Craft Store artists, Klahoose band members and others who will miss having the Festival close by. We invite you to call or email us to talk about how to join in this movable feast.
