Wed, August 8 - Mon, August 13

All Day

Alan Doyle confirmed to headline the 32nd Annual H & R Block Lewisporte Mussel Bed Soiree on August 11, 2018.

            The Town of Lewisporte, H & R Block and the Mussel Bed Soiree Committee are pleased to announce that Alan Doyle & the Beautiful Band will headline the 32nd Annual Mussel Bed Soiree Concert in the Park on Saturday August 11th, 2018. We are also pleased to announce Canadian Rock Legend Sass Jordan, NL’s own Shanneyganock, St. Anthony’s Mitchell Hunt and Lewisporte’s own artist Adam Baxter as our confirmed acts. The 32nd Mussel Bed Soiree will run from August 8th – 13th, 2018.

While we are still in the early stages of organizing, we are very excited about the events we have planned for both old and young to enjoy. Some of the events that are always fun filled for everyone include, Story Time Trail and Family Fun Day for the kids, Comedy Night, Giant Stadium Dance for the adults, the Boat Parade of Lights for families, and the highlight of the weekend being the Concert in the Park.

Thank you to everyone who attended and volunteered to make last year’s Mussel Bed Soiree a success.
