Mark your calendars: After two long years, Canada’s longest-running free music festival will return tomorrow with the 28th edition of Music in the Park, proudly presented by BCLC and the City of Kamloops.
Free, nightly performances are back from July 1 to August 31 at the Rotary Bandshell in Riverside Park, kicking off with performances by Sabrina Weeks, Shattered Blue and Richard Graham and the Blackbeats.
“As a social-purpose company, BCLC is committed to our ongoing support of events such as Music in the Park that contribute to the social and cultural fabric of Kamloops,” said Peter ter Weeme, BCLC’s Chief Social Purpose Officer and Vice President, Player Experience. “BCLC has been a proud sponsor of Music in the Park alongside the City of Kamloops since 1994, and we’re thrilled to help bring Kamloopsians back together again to hear the musical talent of this summer’s lineup. Stay tuned for the unveiling of the amazing concert headliner for BCLC’s annual Midsummer Music Jam on July 27.”
Food Truck Wednesdays also returns to Riverside Park, beginning July 6. Every Wednesday, a minimum of two food trucks will be onsite at Riverside Park from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., serving hungry concertgoers a variety of tasty street-eats.
The full 2022 Music in the Park nightly entertainment schedule is available on the City of Kamloops website. All concerts are weather and air quality permitting. Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food donations on Fridays in support of the Kamloops Food Bank.
