Performances in the Park

Presented by the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society under the management of The Community Arts Council of Williams Lake, with the support of the Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams Lake.

Artist applications for the 2020 Performances in the Park are now open!

Are you a dynamic performer or troupe looking for a sweet spot to play this summer?

The Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society is happy to announce that Performances in the Park, the outdoor free summer concert series, is now accepting applications for performances of all styles and genres. We are currently looking for performers of every type to fill these performances (Indigenous and cultural performers, musicians, spoken word, dance, theatre, etc.).

“It would be wonderful to see a more diverse slate of arts for Performances in the Park,” says new Event Manager, Venta Rutkauskas. “We’ve seen amazing bands over the years, and there’s no reason we can’t invite multi-disciplinary artists onstage, too.”

“Our aspiration in supporting Performances in the Park is to see the broadest scope of arts, culture, and performance genres on stage while helping to introduce our audiences to a combination of local talent and international performers,” adds Harry Jennings, CCACS President.

Culturally rich and diverse, our region celebrates this capacity through organizations, events and festivals, of which Performances in the Park is a successful example. In its second decade, the event continues to attract quality acts to entertain local audiences.

This year, Performances will begin on Thursday, July 2nd, 2020 at 6:00pm and will continue each Thursday evening at the same time at the Gwen Ringwood Theatre in Williams Lake’s Boitanio Park until August 20th, 2020.

New this year, with the support of the Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams Lake, the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society will be presenting this event under the management of The Community Arts Council of Williams Lake and their Coordinator Venta Rutkauskas.

The concert series will feature two acts each week; one from 6 pm – 6:55pm and then from 7:05 – 8:00 pm. All acts will be family friendly.

Performances in the Park is grateful to the business community in Williams Lake for the financial and in-kind support they have provided. This event wouldn’t be possible without their support. Sponsorship opportunities are now available
