City of Kamloops and BCLC Present: 2018 Music in the Park


The City of Kamloops and BCLC are proud to present another great season of Music in the Park. Canada’s longest-running music festival continues with tradition to provide residents and tourists with 62 free evening performances from a variety of talented artists. Beginning July 1, the Rotary Bandshell in Riverside Park will host free musical performances at 7:00 p.m. every night until August 31.   

Food Truck Wednesdays is also back by popular demand. Every Wednesday beginning July 4, food trucks will be at Riverside Park serving the best street eats in Kamloops between 5 and 9 p.m. 

New this year, and for the month of July only, Brew Loops will join Food Truck Wednesdays to serve local craft beer in the family-friendly beer gardens.

BCLC’s 6th Annual Midsummer Music Jam will be held on Wednesday, July 25. This year’s concert features award winning Canadian country artist Gord Bamford, one of the biggest acts on the Canadian country music scene. Audience members are encouraged to bring donations for the Kamloops Food Bank.

The full 2018 Music in the Park nightly entertainment schedule is available through the City of Kamloops. All concerts are rain or shine and subject to change.

Since 1985, BCLC has delivered more than $21 billion to help support communities, provincial programs and services, charities and major events that have helped shape B.C.


Jim Lightbody, President and CEO, BCLC

“BCLC has called Kamloops home for 33 years and, for the last 25 years, we have supported Music in the Park with our partners at the City of Kamloops. Each year provides another exciting opportunity to take part and enjoy all of the great music coming to our community. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
