Free, family friendly concerts take place every Friday night from 6:45 p.m. to 9 p.m. through August 30 at Memorial Park, adjacent to Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre. Music lovers will enjoy a variety of genres including country, pop, classical, and more! West Kelowna Recreation staff will be in the park hosting games and activities for the kids. A food vendor will also be operating on site this year, offering hot food, sandwiches and cool summer treats.

Part of the community connection will happen through Facebook. Join the conversation through the Facebook link on the District of West Kelowna homepage at districtofwestkelowna.ca.
