What is the East Coast Garden Party?
The East Coast Garden Party is a non-profit organization based in Grande Prairie, AB, working on our 7th year in Grande Prairie and our 3rdd year in Fort McMurray. The East Coast Garden Parties’ goal is to have “East meets West” in a Kitchen style party. All of those who grew up in the East will recognize this as a Good Time, Good Friends, Good Music and Good Food, usually happening in the kitchen!
We strive to have one night dedicated to Classic Rock, enjoying the sound of bands like The Trews and Nazareth. The second night is full of Celtic music and performers from the East, such as Cod Gone Wild and St James' Gate. This provides enjoyment to many different people, young and old.
