The annual concert series returns with a lineup of 26 free concerts and an outdoor movie on select nights in June, July and August. All shows begin at 7 pm (weather permitting) at the Lions Club Bandshell and there is ample free parking at the nearby Cornwall Civic Complex.

“Last year’s Arts in the Park was one of the most well-attended we’ve ever seen and we’re hoping to build on that success this year,” said Lorne Taillon, Supervisor of Recreation & Programming with the City of Cornwall. “We’ve put together a lineup that covers a variety of musical styles and genres. There’s definitely something for everyone.”

Now in its 37th year, Arts in the Park has become a mainstay of Cornwall’s summer events calendar.

“It’s a family-friendly activity that everyone can enjoy,” Taillon added. “Bring some lawn chairs or a blanket and relax and enjoy some great music right on the waterfront.”
