Errington Coffee House starts up

Longstanding coffee house event in errington features lots of local talent,
food and refreshments

Errington’s first Coffee House of the season begins this Saturday, a fun family affair that goes “way back” said organizer Denise Schmidt.

The event involves local people—and often people from the surrounding areas—performing on the open mic stage at the Errington Hall. This includes people of all ages, Schmidt said, singing, playing instruments, reading poetry and generally entertaining.

She said many young singers have been performing at the event for years, like local talent Sophie Cloutier.

“Lots of kids have grown up coming to

Coffee Houses in this community,” she said.

Schmidt, and some helpers, bake home made desserts for the events, like triple layer cakes, cheesecakes, pies, and puddings, and refreshments (including coffee of course) are also available.

The best part of the event is seeing all the great performers in the area, Schmidt said.

“Just the variety of entertainment that comes in, it is just so incredible, there are so many talented people in our community.”

The Errington Coffee House happens on the first Saturday of every month, with the first one taking place Sept. 3.

Door open at 7 p.m. and music starts around 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5, $2.50 for kids ages 5-12 and under 5 are free. Performers get in free.
