Dozens of live musical performers in the Gore this summer

The Gore Park Summer Promenade staged by Downtown Hamilton BIA is back this summer with a large lineup of musical performances.

The Summer Promenade will run every Thursday from May 25 to August 31, and in a change from previous years’ format, there will be two bands playing each day, with a fun event in between the two sets. The first band will perform from 12 to 2 pm, there will be an activation from 2 to 4 pm, and the final band will take the stage from 4 to 6 pm. Designated as free, family events, the promenade turns Gore Park into a bustling and inviting space.

Seating and life-size games including connect 4, jenga and chess will be positioned throughout the park each Thursday, and there will be a variety of vendors attending throughout the summer to share information about their organizations and the services that they provide. Weather permitting, there will be a food truck present at every day of the Summer Promenade.

Dr. Disc will provide the sound engineering for the live shows.

The Summer Promenade is a rain-or-shine event with the exception of severe weather, and Downtown BIA will notify the public of any necessary cancellations through social media channels. The music line-up for the 2023 Summer Promenade:
