All OCAC programmes and events are made possible by funding from the Province of BC and the Bc Arts Council.
The Oliver Community Arts Council is grateful to their NEW sponsor for Music in the Park: Valley First Credit Union! Show your thanks for this arts subsidy by dropping off your canned goods at the local branch in support of their Feed the Valley program. All your canned goods go to Oliver’s local food bank.
Music in the Park is a popular program featuring performers every Thursday night in July and August on the riverside behind the CPR Station in Oliver, BC. Rock, country, jazz, classical, choral, gospel, folk and world music — there’s a sound for everyone! Here are some photos of the July entertainers:
