Summer in Harrison

 In Harrison Beach Hotel Blog

Summer is the best time to make up any excuse to get outside! If you have been cooped up all winter or even during rough weather patches this spring, you need that daily dose of vitamin D. It is time to find any opportunity to explore and take in every moment of fresh air.


Sasquatch Days are just around the corner and you know what that means? It’s time to celebrate the existence or myth of this legendary creature. Whether you believe its fact or fiction, the town did develop its own holiday so why not join and celebrate? This two-day event happens on June 15-16th and features: canoe races, boat tours, games, music, traditional salmon barbeque, artisan activity tables, medicine walks and talks on the Sasquatch from Sts’ailes experts and Sasquatch investigators. This very unique experience only happens once every year, and maybe this time we might just spot something or someone!


For over 40 years the Harrison Festival of the Arts has been warming the hearts of the attendees and this year’s dates are July 12-21. Want to learn a new skill at a workshop? How do you like the idea of experiencing live performances at the beach with the incredible view of Harrison lake as a backdrop? Each weekend of the festival there will be an art market along the waterfront which will display a variety of local artists work that you can bring home as a souvenir. Come celebrate both national and international arts at this festival that perfectly fuses cultures and nations together.


Love outdoor music? Then the Bands on the Beach festival is the event for you! This 9th annual event is ready to rock your socks off, literally… Most people don’t wear socks on the beach. Submissions just closed for performers and they will soon be announcing the lineup on their Facebook page. If you are interested in enjoying 2- days of live music on the beach Saturday Aug 31st & Sunday Sept 1st, then you should start planning now because Harrison books up fast! What could be better than tanning on the beach listening to live music that will truly make you feel like you are floating every time a refreshing gust of wind comes by to gently cool you off.


This weather isn’t going to stick around forever so make sure you get out and experience every event Harrison has to offer. Summer doesn’t last forever but the memories you make will. There is no better place to stay than Harrison Beach Hotel, the view is incredible and the walk is short to the water! Book your stay today and make memories all summer long.


This is the summer you have been waiting for, it’s time to get out, explore and make memories.
