Performances in the Park

Performances in the Park

Presented by the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society, with the support of the Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams Lake.

The Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society (CCACS) is pleased to announce the award of the 2020-2022 Performances in the Park management contract to the Community Arts Council of Williams Lake (CACWL). Performances in the Park is a well-attended, free, outdoor summer concert series held on Thursdays evenings at Boitanio Park’s Gwen Ringwood Theatre throughout July and August. The series features two family-friendly acts each week, with local, national, and international performers. The CACWL commits to upholding the quality of content produced to date in previous years of Performances in the Park, while also seeking innovative and creative ways to enhance the event, under the guidance and support of the CCACS. Funding is provided by the Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams Lake, with numerous local sponsorships making it all possible.

“We are so pleased to be able to work with such a wonderfully creative and hard-working, local, arts organization to continue bringing quality, free entertainment to Williams Lake and the Cariboo next summer.  Welcome Community Arts Council of Williams Lake to taking over Performances In The Park starting 2020!”  ~ Harry Jennings, CCACS President

“It’s an exciting time for the CACWL, building on our previous successes with smaller performances and public arts engagement.  We are very open to hearing from the public about their experiences with Performances in the Park, really looking to them to offer feedback and suggestions for our upcoming season. How can we make this event even better, more engaging for all ages? We look forward to finding out.”   ~ Venta Rutkauskas, CACWL Program Manager / Coordinator
