SHOREfest 2009

SHORE 104.3 FM’s SHOREfest will return to this year’s Honda Celebration of Light. This free concert series of fabulous Canadian bands runs all day ahead of the fireworks at Sunset Beach and English Bay on July 28, August 1 and 4.

SHOREfest represents Vancouver’s finest with free live music, fireworks displays, a vendor village and spending the day (and night) with ocean views and sand between your toes. These three events make for a great staycation or way to entertain out of town guests.

This year’s SHOREfest lineup presented by Shore 104 features national rockers The Trews plus Said the Whale and Bahamas headlining the Shore 104 Stage in English Bay.

Vancouverites and tourists are invited to bring blankets and head down to Vancouver’s waterfront early to snag a prime spot to enjoy the free entertainment before watching three new countries compete in the world’s largest offshore international fireworks competition: Vietnam (July 28), Brazil (August 1), and Italy (August 4).
