It’s a week away & it’s gonna be great – the San Juan Island Music Festival on the first!
An all-San Juan Island Music Festival is planned for Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012 (Labor Day Weekend) at the former Browne’s Lumber vacant lot at 330 Spring St. in Friday Harbor. The all-day event will feature 8 performances from these San Juan Island bands & artists, playing jazz, rock, blues, folk, ragtime, and vaudeville:
The Fabulous Rhythmatics, The San Juan Jazz Quintet, Teddy Deane, David Bayley, the One More Time Big Band, Kate Schuman, Gretchen & Beau, and The Argyle St. Traditional Jazz Band.
This San Juan Lions Club event will offer hot dogs, sandwiches, beer, wine, soft drinks, plenty of seating, sun and shade, and fun. Admission at the gate will be $10. Kids 12 and under free.
Proceeds will help fund the many Lions Vision and Hearing projects. A goal is to purchase a digital vision screening unit for preschool aged children. Currently no such screening is available, and the screening device will be made available for all the children of our county.
