2021 Summer Concert Series

The Town of Orangeville will be offering the second Drive-in Summer Concert Series in August, with tickets going on sale June 8.  Orangeville Council approved the 2021 event as part of the annual operating budget.  An exciting line-up of concerts is planned for the end of August. Performances are set for August 20-21 and 25-28 through advance online ticket sales with MyFM 101.5 as the media sponsor. The drive-in concerts will be on stage in the parking lot at Rotary Park, with a limited capacity for each show.

“The past year has certainly continued to be challenging in the music and event industry,” said Mayor Sandy Brown. “Orangeville Council is pleased to have the Town offer live music again this summer. Residents are ready for, and deserve, some great entertainment. The Town is excited to be able to offer this concert series with the collaborative help of our community partners, Orangeville Blues & Jazz Festival team, Theatre Orangeville, BSocial Enterprises/Café and the Orangeville Public Library.”
