Interested in having live music in your neighbourhood this summer?

Campbell River’s popular downtown concert series is hitting the road to bring physically-distanced concerts to different neighbourhoods around town.

Four concerts will take place at locations randomly selected by a draw entered by individual households.

‘Spirit Square On the Move’ will be available to all homes in the immediate area of the winning residence.

Recreation programmer Karen Chappell says it’s designed to be a safe way to connect neighbourhoods to live music.

“These street-based concerts will allow people to listen at a safe distance from their front yards, on patios, porches or decks, while participating in a family-friendly, community-based event with their immediate neighbours,” Chappell says.

Concerts will be held between 4:00pm and 7:00pm on July 9th and 18th and August 6th and 15th.

The city’s Recreation and Culture Department will close the local street and fully manage each live music event.

“Many people have been inside their homes and condo buildings for more than three months now, and this concert series is wonderful opportunity to bring a little bit of excitement to our neighbourhoods, while also maintaining Campbell River’s commitment to providing a safely-distanced space for people to comfortably connect,” says Mayor Andy Adams. “We look forward to helping people re-connect by offering live music throughout Campbell River, possibly even in places that have never held a community event before.”

You can send questions and enter the draw for a concert by emailing your address, contact information, and preferred concert date to Karen.Chappell@campbellriver.ca before July 3rd.

There’s a limit of one entry per household.
