Summer Entertainment Series

The Summer Entertainment Series is family-friendly community entertainment at it's finest, and best of all it is entirely FREE to the public. For more than 25 years, the City of Sarnia has put on a variety of eclectic concerts that originated with our "Waterfront Concert and Entertainment Series" at Centennial Park, and later moved and expanded to Canatara Park. As the years have gone by, local interest has grown and the concert series now includes Kenwick on the Lake in Bright’s Grove, and the Germain Park Garden. Each location has grown into its own unique identity. Our newest series, Get Out of the Garage, features Sarnia’s newest up and coming youth bands and musicians, ages 21 and under. Today, this array of concerts is known as the Summer Entertainment Series, featuring On the Waterfront, Kenwick on the Lake, Music in the Garden, and Get Out of the Garage. For a complete calender of this years entertainment, simply download the PDF located at the bototm of the page.
