Message From Dale Gagne

General Manager of BEST WESTERN Pembroke Inn & Conference Centre

The Best Western Pembroke Inn & Conference Centre Team survived Sabstock 6! This year proved to be the best yet, with great weather, amazing music, friendly people and our Ottawa Valley Charm shining through.

From Honeymooon Suite on Friday night, April Wine on Saturday, Harper & the Midwest Kind on Sunday and of course SAB & the Family Band, every day was filled with electric performances that thrilled the crowds. We made some great new friends and chatted with old ones at the Best Western booth all weekend long. We have been a part of this festival since day one, and look forward to following that tradition year after year as a Main Stage Sponsor and Festival Partner.
