Summer Concert Series

Following the approval of the Provincial Government for drive-in events, including music concerts, Orangeville Council has endorsed an exciting line-up of concerts for the end of August. The drive-in concerts will be held in the parking lot at Rotary Park, with a limited capacity. Performances are set for August 21-23 and 26-28 through advance online ticket sales. E. Hofmann Plastics is the presenting partner of the six-concert series. Wightman is the show sponsor for the August 27 and 28 concerts. MyFM 101.5 is also a show sponsor.



“After a summer of following Public Health’s social distancing protocols, residents are ready for, and deserve, some great entertainment,” said Mayor Sandy Brown. “Orangeville Council is excited to be able to offer this concert series with the collaborative help of our community partners, Theatre Orangeville and Community Living Dufferin. The generosity of our presenting sponsor, E. Hofmann Plastics, along with other local business sponsors demonstrates the great sense of community in this town.”



The Summer Concert Series is presented by the Town of Orangeville, in collaboration with Theatre Orangeville (providing performance management) and Community Living Dufferin (providing a snack concession). The Town will provide parking marshalling and public washroom cleaning. Music 21 is providing the stage, video screen and FM transmission to cars.
