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.
Five Acre Shaker Lineup
Where: McLean Mill Historic Park (5633 Smith Rd, Port Alberni)
When: August 9-11, 2019

The McLean Mill site is actually over 30 acres of forest and fields, with a mountain backdrop and camping options. The festival includes wellness workshops, an EDM after dark party, giant games, and Vancouver Island Professional Wrestling.
There’s a shuttle service from 4 points in town to/from the festival site, vendors on site, and a whole lot of fun to be had. Thanks to my friends at FestivalSeekers, I have a pair of weekend passes to give away. Here’s how you can enter to win:
