The Spirit of the Sea Festival is an annual weekend-long celebration in the seaside community of White Rock. A variety of events span more than 2 kilometers along the waterfront overlooking the silver beaches of Semiahmoo Bay. This is a family oriented celebration of the water, land and life of the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Driven by the dedication and spirit of community partners, donors and volunteers, the Festival has evolved into a world-class event.
This weekend’s Spirit of the Sea Festival offers a little of everything – in the way of music and other entertainment – with a strong local bias in the lineup assembled for the Main Stage (West Beach), the East Beach Stage and the Spirit Stage (Semiahmoo Park bandshell, courtesy of the Semiahmoo First Nation) and a variety of after-hours venues.
Entertainment kicks off with two evening gigs on Friday – The Myles Bigalow Trio featuring guitarist Jim Black (Deluxe Restaurant) and The Malarkeys (Slainte By The Pier).
Saturday and Sunday sees children’s entertainment running at the Spirit Stage for most of the day before musical acts take over.
The weekend has full free fun for the whole family, included a children’s carnival and parade, beach games, races, fireworks and continuous live entertainment for all.
