I’ve spent the last few springs in Port Alberni, hiking, drinking craft beer, fishing, and exploring an ancient First Nations village site. There’s a whole lot to do but there’s also a lot of buzz about one annual event in particular “The Shaker“. Now in its 5th year, the Five Acre Shaker is once again producing a stellar lineup of BC music at McLean Mill Historic Park.
