Summer Entertainment Series

Originally named the Annual Waterfront Concert and Entertainment Series, the City of Sarnia's Summer Entertainment Series has expanded quite a bit and become a must-attend summer event.  The series is designed to provide family-friendly, community entertainment, and is entirely FREE to the public.  As of 2017, our Summer Music Series has expanded to five different locations: By the Beach at Canatara and Centennial Park, Kenwick on the Lake, Germain Park (Music in the Garden), and NEW at Tecumseh Park (Get out of the Garage).  There is so much talent and musical diversity in Sarnia - come check it out at one of our nightly concerts!

Summer Entertainment Series: By the Beach (Canatara and Centennial Park)

Our longest musical tradition now wrapped into two parks, Summer Entertainment Series: By the Beach will begin June 6th and end on August 24th.  All concerts will begin to take place in the Bandshell at Canatara Park, Monday - Thursday, until the week of June 21, at which point in time, concerts will begin in Centennial Park on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The Monday, June 26th show will exceptionally take place at Centennial Park, featuring a Scottish Night.  All shows are scheduled for a 7:00pm start time and will run for approx. two hours.
