Music in the Park

Wednesday nights in July & August in Pioneer Park

Join us Wednesday nights in Pioneer Park (corner of West Saanich Rd and Clarke Rd) from 6:30-8:30. There's parking at the library, or you can walk or bike to the park. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and a picnic dinner, or buy dinner from one of our vendors.   We sell 50/50 tickets each week to help us cover our costs, so remember to bring your $5!   


We are currently accepting applications to perform at this year's Music in the Park. 

About Music in the Park


For over 20 years we've hosted our outdoor concerts, and have helped other municipalities set up their own outdoor concerts. We're very proud of our all-ages event, which brings the community together each week.  

We are now accepting submissions for 2019. If you wish to have your band considered for MIP, submit your bio and EPK to our email: 

We are looking for polished, experienced bands that can  connect with the 

audience and play great, original music.  

We're looking for creative & engaging music that will suit an audience ages 0-100.

Please check out the bands from last year, and see if your band fits the bill. PLEASE NOTE: due to the high number of submissions we receive each year, we cannot reply to each submission. We will only contact those we are booking. 

We rarely book cover bands. 

Please check out the bands from 2018 to see what we are looking for.
