The Harbour City will be hosting some live music to celebrate summer and connect audiences.
The four-part summer music series will be a free, unticketed outdoor event according to the city in a press release Tuesday. They say each concert will be held in different parks around Nanaimo.
The first of the four concerts will take place on July 24 from 3 to 4 p.m. at Departure Bay beach, featuring local Chamber-Folk-Pop artist Elise Boulanger and her band.
Nanaimo Mayor Leonard Krog says he is looking forward to bringing concerts back to parks and it’s one of the steps in Nanaimo’s reopening.
“We are so happy to welcome live music back into our parks this summer,” said Krog. “This is just one of many activities we will see in our public spaces this year as we reopen and Re-imagine our leisure time.”
The city says the steps to having concerts are also in line with their strategic plan through the support of arts, culture and recreation. They say the plan aims to make the community “liveable, environmentally sustainable and full of opportunity for all generations.”
The three other concerts will take place in August. More information can be found on the city’s website.
