The Amherst Island Waterside Summer Series was established in 1994 to raise funds for St. Alban’s Church but is now an independent not-for-profit organization. Its goal is to present quality music in the wonderful setting of Amherst Island, a place of tranquillity and natural beauty just a half-hour drive from downtown Kingston, west along the Loyalist Parkway. The concerts take place at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, just south of Stella. Tickets cost $35 and include refreshments served during the 20-minute intermission.
The Amherst Island ferry leaves from Millhaven dock on the half-hour and from Amherst Island on the hour. St. Paul’s church is 2km straight south from the ferry dock on the Island.
These well-attended concerts are a perfect summer outing, bringing together beautiful music and a remarkable natural setting.
