Chester Merchants Press Release


Another Chester Race Week has come and gone. It was lovely to see all the boats coming home with spinnakers flying. Top marks to all the organizers - it was a great show !
This week we are saying goodbye and good luck to Gord Gillis. Gord has been one of our favourite bartenders at the Fo'c'sle Pub for many years. He is leaving us for the brights lights of Sydney, Cape Breton. "Down with the Causeway!"


This Week in Chester 

Chester Playhouse is excited to present 2b theatre's production of "One Discordant Violin" tonight, Wednesday, until Saturday, August 25 at 7:30 pm and a 2 pm matinee this Saturday.
Beauty is found in unexpected places. A duet for actor and violinist based on a short story by Yann Martel (Life of Pi), One Discordant Violin explores a transformative encounter with an unlikely composer. Delicate, gentle, and moving, it is a story of what happens when we reach for something beyond our grasp.

Happy Hour is happening tonight from 6 pm with the musical stylings of our favourite local musician Kevin Koloff. Drinks are $3.50. What's not to love about that ?
Enjoy a lively hour with your friends at the Chester Playhouse and catch 2b's performance after. The Playhouse now allows you to take your drinks inside. Bring your sippy cup.

Friday the Farmers and Artisans are at the Chester Train Station from 9 - 1pm (rain or shine) Fresh fish, meat, breads, veggies, baked goods, jewelry, soaps, folk art, flowers, sweet treats and hot food.
