Welcome

Located on 45 acres of immense beauty along the North Thompson River, Serenity is a unique music venue that has become a sought out destination for artists and audiences alike.  Just 15 minutes up the highway from Clearwater, BC you will find the Serenity acreage down a back dirt road in the small community of Birch Island. Known for its up close and personal shows, kindhearted staff, and generous hospitality (including world famous homemade cheesecake!), Serenity is a home away from home for all who visit.   Hosting multiple concerts a month, either in the house on the indoor stage, out in the garden, or on the main stage overlooking the river, you can always count on a one-of-a-kind experience.  Everything leads up to our annual 3 day Harvest Music Festival in early September!

With a regular audience that continues to grow, we invite you to attend any of our upcoming shows to share in the magic and experience our little piece of music heaven. 


Special notes: Camping is FREE on the acreage in the seasonal months with the purchase of a concert ticket. There is also a Bed & Breakfast cabin available for booking on-site all year round.  Reservations for both camping and B&B must be made ahead of time.  The venue is also available for private booking rentals.  For these and any other inquiries, please call owner/operator Shirley de Vooght @ 250-676-9456.

Gritty rock n’roll to swampy Southern blues and back again, Sadie Campbell’s sound is a sweet cocktail of traditional standards spiked with a modern edge. Void of bells and whistles, Sadie makes no excuses for her adulterous, raw vocals and keeps it simple with honest lyrics and sultry rock instrumentals.

    Serenity is an absolutely magical place. The house concerts are intimate and allow you to have a unique and personal experience with some of the most talented musicians you can find. Harvest Fest is an event like no other. I have never been to a music event where all of the patrons treat each other like family. I have also never been to a festival where people have more respect for the land they are occupying. Shirley is one of the most amazing hosts you could ever ask for. She treats everyone like family and always has a beautifully radiant smile on her face. Serenity is one of the top music venues in all of BC and if you haven't been yet, it is well worth the trip out to Clearwater as it truly lives up to its name in every way. Thank you, Shirley for providing the world with such a special place for music lovers and musicians alike.

    The Serenity music experience is like no other. Whether it's a cozy house concert or one of the events on the outdoor stage, the atmosphere is always friendly and the music outstanding. Shirley has hit on recipe for joy that keeps us coming back again and again.
