Music, old time games set to Inspire in Shawnigan

Heritage Inspire Fest is taking on a whole new flavour at Shawnigan Lake this year.

For the first time, it’s an unplugged celebration of Shawnigan’s arts, heritage and community. The fun takes place Sunday, Aug. 17 from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Organizers are promising "awesome music" this year along with many old time games for kids like sack races and a horse shoe toss.

There’ll be art everywhere and old time photo shoots for kids plus a kids’ artisan market and a family picnic.

There will be no vendors this year so everyone participating can support local businesses directly.
