The Performing Arts centre people have upped their game. Hard on the heels of a very successful event last summer they have expanded the program from a number of evenings of Jazz on the Plaza to a series of events that includes Sunday programs for families and a Tuesday evening that covers a number of musical genres.


That plaza will be packed on Tuesday, Fridays and |Sunday during the month of August as the Performing Arts Centre shows its appreciation for the just under $1 million subsidy they get from the city.

A free evening of entertainment every Tuesday in August, featuring musical performances across a range of genres. The bar will be open and a variety of snacks available. In the event of rain, the performance will be moved inside.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 2 Stacey Lee Gusé
TUESDAY, AUGUST 9 Dave Barrett Trio with Michael Sadler (SAGA)

Friday is the Jazz evening – on the Plaza from 6:30pm – 8:30pm Bar will be open – cash only.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 5 Ricochet – Led by Adrean Farrugia
FRIDAY, AUGUST 12 Rob Tardik
FRIDAY, AUGUST 19 Barbra Lica
FRIDAY, AUGUST 26 Vincent Wolfe and The VegasNorth Seven

SUNDAY FAMILY FUN Sunday afternoons – 2:00pm – 5:00pm – free family fun, from music, to dance, to games, to sing-a-longs and more, there will be something for everyone! A variety of snacks and drinks will be available to keep youngsters and their parents energized throughout the afternoon. In the event of rain, the performance will be moved inside.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 7 The Monkey Bunch / Mark Correia
SUNDAY, AUGUST 14 Singalong Tim and The Pacifiers / The Sentimentalists
SUNDAY, AUGUST 21 Sonshine and Broccoli / Phil The Magic Guy

The program was very popular its first year – it was hard to get a place to sit.

The city shuts down streets for many events – it would create a lot more space for people to sit and enjoy the music if that short block of Locust was traffic free for these events.  It could double the capacity.
