If you’re Vancouver-bound, or if you just want to sample an internationally-flavored musical event, you might want to mark your calendar with a series of concerts happening this summer near the Peace Arch on the Washington-B.C. border.

The Washington State Parks Commission is staging the Peace Arch International Concert Series on Sundays from Aug. 4 to Sept. 1 at Peace Arch State Park, 100 A St., in Blaine, Whatcom County.

  • Aug. 4: Shifty Sailors, Anglo-American sea chantey and maritime music
  • Aug. 11: Te’a rama, traditional Tahitian music and dance
  • Aug. 18: Urvasi Dancers, Asian Indian Orissi Dance
  • Aug. 25: Quichua Mashis, music of the Andes
