The performance will happen at the A.N.A.F., which was slated for dismissal last we were up. But, as you can see, its still rolling as one of the town’s main performance venues!

After Ucluelet we head to Salmon Beach, Toquart Bay, May 22nd, for a private event.

Our third performance for the long weekend will be back in Victoria for the the last day of the Highland Games and Celtic Fest on May 23nd. Visit their site for details: http://victoriahighlandgames.com/games/
