Midsummer Music Jam celebrates Kamloops by bringing community together24/07/2017
Whether its waving your hands in the air or lending a helping hand, Midsummer Music Jam on July 26th promises to be the summer event of the year in Kamloops! BCLC is thanking the community of Kamloops by giving people the chance to have a great time with music and food, while also showing support for people displaced by the wildfires.
Midsummer Music Jam is going ‘country’ this year with musical acts The Road Hammers and Daylen James. The Road Hammers need no introduction to country music fans as they are the highest selling Canadian country band in history. Opening for them is Daylen James, one of the hottest up and coming Canadian country singers.
Food Truck Wednesday’s during Music in the Park have proven immensely popular, and BCLC has invited 11 local food trucks to dish out their best flavours on July 26th to celebrate the best of local street food.
Midsummer Music Jam is also an opportunity for concert-goers to support wildfire evacuees by bringing non-perishable donations, as well as personal care items such as toothbrushes, towels and face wipes for the Kamloops Food Bank. BCLC is also offering free food truck meals on July 26 for those displaced by the fires; meal vouchers can be picked up at the BCLC tent by showing valid ID.
The entire community is invited to enjoy the largest summer party of the year as food trucks open their doors at 5pm with the free concert starting at 7pm. Since 1985, BCLC has delivered more than $20 billion to the B.C. government to support communities, provincial programs and services, charities and major events that have helped shape B.C.

“Midsummer Music Jam is BCLC’s way of thanking the people of Kamloops for 32 years of support. Each year we bring in great musicians for a special night, and this year we’re adding to that with the city’s best food trucks. We want to bring the community together for a fun night and to support the Kamloops Food Bank, which is particularly important this year due to the impact of the wildfires.”
