Live & Local Concert Series


Where local talent takes centre stage

Our largest outdoor musical events feature new, emerging and accomplished local performing artists who take to the stage in parks and plazas. Bring a lawn chair or blanket for the performance. Concerts start June 28 and are held from 6-8pm every Friday until September 6.

Live & Local Plaza Pop-Ups 2024

Plaza Pop-Ups

Music, arts and games

Plaza Pop-Ups feature a variety of fun, family-friendly activities including music, arts and games. Every Plaza Pop-Up is unique with activities from face painting to interactive arts and crafts and more. Local talent complements the fun evenings by providing live musical entertainment for attendees.  Pop-Ups run every Thursday evening from 6-8pm at various locations, starting July 11 until the end of August.

Live & Local Artist Sessions 2024

Artist Sessions

Adding ambience to North Vancouver

Artist Sessions add ambience to North Vancouver. Artist Sessions are smaller than concerts and are great for people looking to take a break, maybe grab a drink from a nearby shop, and unwind as local artists share their talent with the community.
