Summer Lights Concert Series (Brandon)

Summer Lights Concert Series takes place three times throughout the summer in Princess Park. Our goal is to present top notch Canadian and Manitoban acts, previous lineups have included Sierra Noble, The Bros. Landreth, Del Barber and more.

The concerts also feature free bannock and honey, all made locally! We've also done fun things like Musicians vs. Politicians street hockey games, and we're always looking for new ideas!

Along with the concerts comes a unique learning opportunity for local emerging musicians; headlining acts work as mentors and facilitate workshops ranging from the music business to songwriting, this has proven to be incredibly beneficial for Brandon artists. 

The concert series has expanded into a full day festival in September.

June 15th & August 17th at Princess Park. July 13th event in conjunction with the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba Billboard project launch located on Rosser Avenue at 7th Street. Rain location on June 15th and July 13th at Central United Church
