The City of Vaughan is introducing a new live music series this summer. Music in the Square is a free cultural music event taking place in the heart of the city’s emerging downtown – the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Transit Square, located at 100 New Park Place.
Residents and visitors of all ages are welcome to attend three upcoming cultural music events that will take place in Transit Square on select Thursdays throughout July and August. The live entertainment lineup includes:
- Thursday, July 25 – Celebrating the abundant energy of African music (trio)
- Thursday, Aug.15 – Traditional and fusion Irish music (trio)
- Thursday, Aug. 29 – Bringing Bulgarian music to Vaughan (trio)
The City’s first-ever Music in the Square summer lounge series is held in partnership with SmartCentres and Arcadia Live! Productions.
All events will take place, rain or shine, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Pickup and drop-off zones are available along New Park Place and Millway Avenue and validated parking is available through SmartCentres.
The Music in the Square series furthers the City’s commitment to creating active, safe and diverse communities as outlined in the 2018-2022 Term of Council Service Excellence Strategic Plan. Cultural events like these also help generate awareness and foster pride for the many different nationalities and heritages that make up Vaughan.
