Live, Free Music is Back in Bronte!

We’re thrilled to announce the return of not one, but TWO treasured concert series for the 2022 summer season!

Bronte Lake Notes is returning to the sails stage every Thursday at 7pm at Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park. Featuring contemporary music from hot local bands, the free concerts are for everyone – young and old – and invite audiences to dance, sing and celebrate together while enjoying gorgeous views of the harbour. The event is presented by The Bronte Historical Society and sponsored by RBC and the Bronte BIA.

But, wait – we said there were two musical events to experience. That’s right! The Oakville Wind Orchestra, Canada’s oldest community concert band, will host six family-friendly concerts starting Tuesday, July 5 at 7pm. Take a musical journey through the ages under the gazebo at Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park. Delight in the sounds of Duke Ellington, Hoagy Carmichael, Benny Goodman, Chicago, Stevie Wonder, The Soulful Sixties – your ears will thank you! The Oakville Wind Orchestra Summer Concert Series is sponsored by the Bronte BIA.

So, pack your lawn chair and your dancing shoes and come and celebrate summer on a lakeside stage. Check out our ‘Happening Now’ listings on a regular basis for updates on concert activities and follow our social channels.

These summer-long concerts are part of the 100+ days of activations you’ll see in Bronte through the BIA’s Community Investment program that provides funding to groups looking to host events here. If you know non-profit organizations looking for a uniquely Oakville location to host their event that need sponsorship, contact the BIA today!
