It is going to be a warm, yet slightly wet New Year’s Eve in Niagara Region this year! So why not break out the umbrella and enjoy the free concert in Victoria Park! Here are the details to plan your night…
This highly anticipated free show will begin at 8:00 pm. The outdoor celebration also features a variety of food and beverage options, as well as an outdoor licensed area.
The free concert at Victoria Park starts at 8 pm with opening act Avenue Inn.
Avenue Inn has carved a unique space in the Canadian music scene since their formation in 2012. The Niagara Falls natives have been carefully crafting their own approach to alternative rock with their brand new album “Tonight”.
8:00 pm Avenue Inn:
Next up, retro rockers, the Sheepdogs. The triple Juno Award-winning Saskatoon-based quintet has expanded its sound on Changing Colours to encompass more styles and hues to enhance the Sheepdogs’ trademark long-haired aesthetic.
9:00 pm The Sheepdogs
10 pm: Walk Off the Earth –CANCELLED
11 pm: Burton Cummings – one of the most celebrated rock artists in Canadian music history. Whether as lead singer and songwriter with the Guess Who or on his own, Burton Cummings has amassed more hit records than just about any other Canadian performer in history.
Plan ahead for a long night outside and remember to dress in layers with all the appropriate attire.
