Five Acre Shaker

Five Acre Shaker

What started as a memorial for a local youth in 2014 on a five-acre property has now blossomed into a major musical event for Port Alberni. The call for more space shifted the festival to the beautiful McLean Mill Historic Park. Now, people staying for the weekend can camp on-site to stroll over to the stages, to the games, to the food vendors and to the locally brewed craft beer! There will be Artisan vendors offering massages, henna tattoos, face-painting for the kids, yoga and hula workshops.

The Five Acre Shaker is a 37-acre weekend of music and a battle of the bands the Battle is held in May, not at the Shaker, this gives the winner time to prepare for the Shaker.

The Port Alberni Battle of the Bands invites bands and solo acts, under the age of 25 to sign up for the contest. The prize money is great but even better is the exposure for budding artists.
