Getting “warmed” up for concerts

The Oliver Community Arts Council is collaborating with Oliver Parks and Recreation to mount the Music in the Park concert series at the Community Stage (bandshell). Join us Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 through the summer. Bookings are happening now, so if you are an interested local musician, contact olivercac @  A night market is also planned to co-ordinate with the concerts. We welcome artists, artisans, food services, souvenirs, and farm-gate ;produce on any and all nights. Are you a vendor? Contact Oliver Parks and Rec to set up your booth.

Arts council member Firehall Brewery also amps up their Back Alley concert series, one a month from May to July. Cool off with some fantastic locally crafted suds (Holy Smoke Stout or an Ember Ale, say) while you listen to some rockin’ sounds. Tickets sold at the Firehall Bistro for $12.
