City Launches Music at the Market Lunchtime Concert Series
Owen Sound, Ontario
Friday, September 11, 2020


A new lunchtime music series has the Owen Sound Farmers’ Market sounding sweeter than ever!  The City of Owen Sound is proud to present Music at the Market – a free, physically distanced, lunchtime concert event featuring local talent from the Grey County area and beyond. This new program offers visitors to the many downtown shops and
eateries an opportunity to take a break and enjoy a free concert by local musicians.  The Music at the Market website will highlight lunchtime meal options from local
eateries, so grab your favourite takeout and enjoy the music! 


Music at the Market begins September 16, 2020 and runs weekly, every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Owen Sound Farmers’ Market square.  With support from the Federal Economic Development Agency of Ontario and the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario, this concert series will help bring people back safely to the downtown core and encourage residents and visitors to explore and support Owen Sound businesses and most importantly sustain employment.  Health and safety are key components of these live shows. The City of Owen Sound has worked with Public Health to ensure all guidelines are followed, with plenty of space between tables, and physical distancing being monitored by Owen Sound Ambassadors.


Music lovers are in for a treat with a diverse lineup featuring live performances from Coco Love Alcorn, The Beckett’s, Higher FunKtion, Larry Jensen with Pete Devlin, Emma Wright, The MacKenzie Blues Band, Shipyard Kitchen Party, Bobby Dean Blackburn and Friends, Emma Wright, Marshall Dane and many more. Full lineup details and local restaurant options can be found at www.musicatthemarket.ca.
