Mixology Night on the Pier also returns to Ambleside Pier, back by popular demand for the 2nd year. This beautiful, “buzzy” event celebrates the cocktail culture renaissance in an intimate setting. Commencing at sunset, Mixology Night sees patrons drifting between 8 of BC’s top bartenders, tempted by deliciously innovative drinks while sampling scrumptious catered food and listening to great music. Mixology Night on the Pier has quickly become one of the most anticipated events of the Harmony Arts Festival. Only 250 tickets will go on sale, and if last year is any indication, they will get snapped up very quickly.
