The North Bay Summer Concert Series will continue again this summer on Wednesday nights through the month of July and culminate with a two act show on the Saturday night of the civic holiday weekend. The event has grown into a wonderful summer tradition at the Kiwanis Bandshell on beautiful Lake Nipissing. All of the shows are 100% free admission and a supported by the City of North Bay.

The concert series will cover several music genres and are expected to draw crowds near a thousand people each night. Some folks simply stop and watch during their evening stroll and others make it a date bringing lawn chairs or blankets.

Shows start around 7pm each night. The shows are weather dependent. The first option for rain nights is the following Thursday.

A special thanks to the 30+ acts who expressed interest in performing.
