If you are looking for an Island cultural experience and you love east coast music, food, culture and history then the beautiful barn loft venue of Clinton Hills is the place you want to be this summer. Ideally located at 123 Harding Creek Road, Clinton is a short drive from P.E.I.’s major centres, Charlottetown, Summerside and Cavendish.
The venue, a 1959 rustic dairy barn has been fully renovated with all modern amenities and conveniences. Seamlessly set against a backdrop of 92 acres of rolling fields, private woods and views of the peaceful Southwest River – making the barn an ideal venue for any function.
This summer Clinton Hills hosts two incredible Island shows. Run for the Hills is a Dinner Music Show about past rum running days in the province beginning 6 p.m. every Sunday and Tuesday from June 25th to August 29th. Local musicians Mike Pendergast, Shane Pendergast, Olivia Roberts and Skye MacAusland will not only entertain you musically, but also serve guests a delicious family style locally-sourced meal. This quintessential P.E.I. experience is rooted in east coast flavors, and guests dine in the Dairy Barn loft, amid an ambiance of hominess and warmth. To order tickets, call 902-886-3080 or visit clintonhills.ca
The second show, hosted by Clinton Hills, has guests step into a foot-stomping celebration of magical tunes, high energy fiddling, piano playing and step-dancing performed by the Ross Family. The talented homespun P.E.I. siblings, comprised of Stephanie, Danielle and Johnny, combine original and traditional material with a twist.
Ross Family Ceilidh has soared in popularity over twelve years, and audience members have returned year after year to hear the masterful blend of Acadian and Scottish sounds. Their interactive spirited music and dance show is every Monday and Wednesday, from June 19 through to September 27. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. and the show start 7:30 p.m.
Grab your online tickets early at clintonhills.ca because the Ross Family Ceilidh will sell out quick, as past events have proven. Clinton Hills will serve a delicious buffet meal from 5-7:30 p.m. before the Ross Family perform, and expect air conditioning and a licensed bar.
