MUSIC AT THE MARKET

WEEKLY LIVE EVENTS. PHYSICALLY DISTANCED.

Presented by the City of Owen Sound, this free physically distanced series of outdoor musical concerts, featured live music performances every
Thursday & Friday, 12pm – 2pm at the Owen Sound Farmers’ Market.

#MusicattheMarket features some of the best musical talent from Owen Sound, Grey County and the surrounding area, reinforcing Owen Sound’s rightful place as a major hub for Ontario’s music and arts scene.

#MusicattheMarket was designed to build community and provide a place where people could connect safely through music during the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the series, our residents have shown what it means to be good neighbours during these challenging times. #MusicattheMarket has not only brought joy into our residents’ lives, it has also been a lifeline for the many small businesses and restaurants in the downtown Owen Sound core, as people return safely to explore and shop while taking in the free concerts.

#MusicattheMarket would like to extend its gratitude to Remax Grey Bruce Realty for the funding that made this event possible.

We would also like to extend a big THANK YOU to the artists for their amazing performances, and above all, sincere thanks to the fans who come out rain or shine  to support this concert series and help make
#MusicattheMarket a success each year!

As the province begins to open its doors after the pandemic we will be updating this page to best reflect any changes in dates. We will be adhering to public health guidelines as we move closer to our first event on July 15th. Please check back often for updates.

WE THANK OUR SPONSORS
