Fundraising Comedy Show

Join us at the Grand Banker Bar & Grill in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada on Friday April 1 at 9:00pm for a comedy show!

Presenting live entertainment is not something we usually do, but when the opportunity came along to host a fundraiser in support of Picton Castle’s GoFundMe, how could we not?  A former trainee crew member, Mckayla, has a friend who is a professional touring comedian who will be on Canada’s east coast for a number of shows this spring.  She connected us with him and he offered to put together an event in support of keeping Picton Castle going and we gladly accepted!

So, on the evening of Friday April 1st, we’ll gather at one of our favourite local watering holes, the Grand Banker, for an evening of fun and laughs while raising much-needed funds to keep Picton Castle going until we can set sail again this fall.  Enjoy some excellent food and drinks at the Grand Banker, bid on a unique collection of silent auction items, catch up with friends, and enjoy a great night out!

Alex Mackenzie quit his job and bought an RV to become a touring comedian just before the pandemic began.  He is coming from British Columbia to tour the east coast, performing comedy shows around the Maritimes this spring.  He has 30+ million views on TikTok, you can check him out at  Joining Alex on stage will be Robbie Vino, a Halifax-based comedian who hosts a weekly comedy night and has himself performed across Canada.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online here:
