3rd Annual Wolfe Island Garden Party

3rd Annual Wolfe Island Garden Party June 10-16, 2019

Celebrate A Bountiful Year in Music, Culture and Agriculture on Wolfe Island!

Wolfe Island Records and Wolfe Island Spring Craft Brewery are pleased to announce the 3rd annual Wolfe Island Garden Party. This year, there will be seven days of events with 29 music acts performing throughout the week. Visitors and locals will be able to listen to great Canadian music, feast on delicious and nutritious local food, participate in talks, learn about Wolfe Island agriculture, and meet the people of Wolfe Island. We encourage one and all to commune with the locals and immerse yourself in the serenity that is Wolfe Island.

Highlights of the week-long Garden Party include a Farm-to-Table 4-Course Dinner, a Songwriter’s Circle, the Wolfe Island Gallery Seasonal Opening, a Farmer’s Market and day-long Live Music performances at the General Wolfe Waterfront. Other free activities include Plein-Air Painting, Japanese Drumming, Dance / Movement demonstrations and Square Dancing.

Live music will be featured at a variety of venues and settings, including the Wolfe Island Grill, the General Wolfe Inn and the Wolfe Island Pub. Many of the musicians performing have recorded albums at Wolfe IslandRecords’ studio, which adds an artistic farm-to-table avour to the performances. People can enjoy the GardenParty for an evening, a day, or the weekend. Some will come for the week.

This is a Pay-What-You-Can event with all funds raised going to support Wolfe Island Art and the Wolfe Island Community Garden. It’s fun for the whole family, and admission for children is free. Patrons can travel to Wolfe Island by bicycle, on foot or by car. The Wolfe Island Ferry runs all day and night and is free of charge.
