Music in the Park returns to West Kelowna this summer with a new look and a new location

Return of Music in the Park

The City of West Kelowna is using the province's gradual reopening to bring back one of the city's most popular summer attractions.

Music in the Park, which was cancelled last year due to COVID-19 restrictions, will return this summer with a bit of a different look and in a new location.

Day-long performances will take place over four days, Thursday, July 1 and three Saturdays; July 31, Aug. 28 and Sept. 4.

The venue has also been moved this year from Memorial Park to Kinsmen Park on Shannon Lake Road, which is better suited to handle restrictions still in place.

Music in the Park will feature four one-hour performances with a maximum of 50 people allowed per performance and six people per group, in keeping with the latest provincial health office guidelines.

The accomplished and in-demand Sean Bray, Kinga Hemming and Bernie Addington Trio take the stage at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to kick off the series on July 1.

Awarding winning songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lindsay May and the Mayhem play at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. performing originals and covers of the greats such as The Beatles and Queen.

In order to take in one of the shows, you must pre-register by calling 778-797-8800.

Those attending shows are asked to bring their own drinks, snacks, chairs or blankets.

The remainder of Kinsmen Park will remain open so, in order to limit crowd size, fencing will be in place.
