On June 6th, join Lacombe’s very own Flatiron Jazz for the first performance in the very popular Music in the Park 2018 Program.
Judging from the great success of previous years, Music in the Park will once again be a favorite for all ages, offering a wide variety of musical entertainment from old time rock and roll, to dixie land, bluegrass, folk, jazz, rhythm & blues, and everything in between.
Presented by the Lacombe Performing Arts Centre Foundation, Music in the Park offers an opportunity for residents of Lacombe and many summer visitors to enjoy an evening of entertainment and experience a wide range of musical styles.
It is also provides a venue for local and regional musicians to showcase their talent and gain exposure to a new and varied audience. The booking committee has been fortunate to secure very high quality performers for Music in the Park, some of whom travel from as far away as Calgary, Edmonton and beyond. This year they not only have many of the popular acts returning, but a large number of new performers who they are looking forward to hosting.
The organizers are very excited to offer the summer program for the second season on the new performing venue, the Echo Stag, located on the South lawn of the Lacombe Memorial Centre, the stage offers shelter for the bands and lots of room for the audience to kick back and enjoy the summer weather..
The Community Market will also start on June 6th running from 4:30 to 8:30 every Wednesday evening until the end of August.
Wendy Buyer, the coordinator for the Community Market, confirmed that the vendors are extremely excited to come back this year.
“What a beautiful way to break up the monotony of the mid-week blues, shopping at the friendly vendors, dinner at the delicious food trucks and a free live concert every week,” she said.
Music in the Park will run June to August, every Wednesday starting at 6:30 p.m.
Everyone is invited to bring their lawn chairs and picnic blankets to the park, enjoy the beautiful weather, good friends and an evening of free entertainment. The bands go rain or shine. There will be signs if it is moved to an inside venue.
