Following up on last year’s very popular pop-up events, Music on Main is back with another round of free outdoor concerts.
From August 9-12 & 16-18, 2022, Music on Main returns to Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant Park to fill the summer evenings with live music. Gather your friends and family, and maybe a picnic, to listen together to the beautiful music in the park, starting each evening at 6:30pm.
To celebrate the return of live music in the park, Music on Main is giving away a season’s pass to their November 2022 Modulus Festival and Music for the Winter Solstice in December for one lucky audience member and a guest, plus a $100 gift card to one of Main Street’s favourite restaurants. To enter this giveaway, sign up for Music on Main’s e-newsletter at musiconmain.ca. All e-mail sign ups between August 1-22, 2022 will be entered automatically into this exciting contest for a chance to listen to adventurous music and enjoy a delicious meal.
