SUMMER IN THE SQUARE 2017
Back again for another year, our Summer in the Square series features local artists who will regale and entertain you in Norman MacKenzie Square through the warm summer months. Performances will be twice a week, every Tuesday at 4:30pm and Saturday at 12pm, from July 8th to September 5th. So grab a beer at BierCraft Restaurant or a refreshing iced drink from Blenz and sit out on their patios, or take a seat in Norman MacKenzie Square, and see our amazing performers!
