Reusable Snack Sacks to Save the Humpbacks

It’s always fun to have a little or a lot of snacks. Sadly the plastic bags they come in look like snacks to animals. You can come by and make your very own reusable snack/produce/bulk bag with us, and save our marine friends from making an unhealthy meal of our plastic waste.

Catch a Rhythm

Saturday August 25 @5:30pm

Making rhythms helps us listen, focus and use a part of our brain that’s often on standby. This form of communication has been with us since we started making art and tools. We became less inclined to grunt about the hunt and more motivated to sit around the campfire and jam. What an evolutionary leap. All percussion instruments will be supplied in this fun, invigorating introduction to rhythm and some of its basic fundamentals. Enjoy.

Bobby Herron has performed, composed and recorded as a vocalist, guitarist, drummer and percussionist for many years in all kinds of places including Canada, The States and Europe.

This workshop takes place in front of the MainStage.
