Sweet Max played at one of last year's Pioneer Park Summer Concert Series.

Local talent on tap for concert series

Pioneer Park series starts July 20

Plenty of local talent is on tap for this year’s Pioneer Park Twilight Concert Series, beginning July 20.

Everyone is invited to bring lawn chairs or blankets to Pioneer Park, for these evenings of entertainment. This year, the concert series is focusing on homegrown talent, starting with Ian Schram on July 20.  Adam Briscoe performs July 27, Marilee and Friends on August 3, Andrew Putt on August 10 and Aleisha Di Iouorio on August 17.  These talented musicians, singers and songwriters are your neighbours, family or friends. The District of Kent’s recreation department organizes the concert series each summer, and is encouraging everyone to come out to show support for our local talent.

The shows start at 6:30 pm and run through to 8 p.m. on the above nights. These concerts are offered free to the community through partnerships with the Agassiz Harrison Lions Club, the Prospera Credit Union and the Agassiz Harrison Observer newspaper. In addition to “passing the hat” to help offset our costs, a bid book of prize packages circulates throughout the park on concert night. The proceeds from this silent auction assist with the fees associated with each performance.  Watch the Observer the week before each concert for the artist biography for the coming concert.
