Warm August Nights returns to Kodiak- perhaps for the last time

Warm August Nights is coming back to Kodiak this August 14th, following a COVID-induced hiatus. It aims to reappear with its full offering- live music, beer garden, hot dogs and hamburgers courtesy of the Lion’s club. But there is a catch.

This may be the last Warm August Nights.

Jeremiah “Doc” Meyers explains why.

“Well, you know the same people putting up the tent. Now the other night there were a handful putting up one of our tents that we rent out. And we were all over 70,” Meyers said.

According to Meyers, the number of Lions club members decreases every year, despite annual recruitment drives.

“We could use some fellowship from the community. And it doesn’t cost much to be a Lion, you don’t have to hit all the meetings, pick the one event that you want to partake and help in. Because it takes a village, and all we do is try to make Kodiak a fun place to be. And all of our projects are the result of the interests of our members. And because we’re waning and support in the music events, porta potties is a lot of work. It’s a lot of string. And so membership is the key to continue such events,” Meyers said.

The lineup includes Doc and Bubba at 6 pm, Logan Cole at 6:45 pm, Drew Sablon at 7:30 pm, Almost Famous at 8:15 pm, Ellamy Tiller and the Twang at 9:00 pm, and Bubba and Friends at 10:30 pm.

The admissions price is 5 cans of food and $10 or $20 for adults. Kids under 12 can get in for 5 cans of food. Shuttle buses begin at 5:30 pm from the Harbormaster’s office, and the last bus is at 12:30 am.

Volunteers interested in volunteering can reach Doc at 539-2010.
