Downtown Live

Presented by the Downtown Business Association, Downtown Live is a summer series of live performances at various venues across Downtown. Starting late July 2021, catch one of 40+ micro-events, whether it’s an indie singer on a restaurant patio, an opera performance overlooking the river valley or an Indigenous singer in a Downtown park. It’s an unforgettable summer of music, theatre, dance and the performing arts in unique Downtown locations.
