The Celebration of Light fireworks got a boost of early evening entertainment last year with SHOREfest and it’s back and even bigger this summer.
Over each of the three fireworks nights SHOREfest (presented by Shore 104FM) will host 23 bands on 3 music stages in English Bay and in Kitsilano.
The Rogue Stage
Located in Vanier Park by the Maritime Museum performers will be Leeroy Stagger, Kevin Kane (of Grapes of Wrath), The Sojourners, and more.
YVR Community Stage
This will be between the Kits Pool and Kits Beach along the walkway with Ryan McAllister, Billy the Kid, Prairie Dance Club, and more.
The Keg Lounge on the Bathhouse Rooftop at English Bay
The English Bay stage will host Steven Page, Wide Mouth Mason, and more.
All of these performances are free to the public July 30th, August 3rd and August 6th before the fireworks. View the full line-up online, bring a picnic, and be entertained while you stake out your fireworks-viewing spot for the evening. The English Bay stage will have reserved bleacher seating and you can enter to win a spot in my latest fireworks contest. I already have my winner for the first night but the second night’s contest is now open. I’ll also have a bleacher seat giveaway for the last fireworks night in a few weeks.
