Summer 'heartbeat' on Saturdays

Funded primarily by Columbia Basin Trust

and other local corporate partners, the seasonal events have become an undeniable social hub for area citizens and visitors. The City of Cranbrook has added their support in recognition of the significant contribution the programs have made to the socio-economic and vibrancy of the city.

A raffle will also be underway to help fund the programs with tickets sales at Rotary Park during the events. To add to the fun, attendees will have a chance to win an assortment of other prizes in a free draw every Saturday thanks to donations from local businesses.

Truly a great combination, the Kootenays are rich with diverse talent and Rotary Park is one of the best venues to relax and enjoy music in the warm summer weather. The exceptional line up of live entertainers is stacked with a variety of genres from folk to jazz, pop to classic rock and unique fusions. The dance component will be more defined and sometimes interactive featuring Tango, Zumba, clogging, belly dancing and presentations of other dance forms. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring their families and friends to the summer ‘heartbeat’ of the city.

Craft beer by the Fisher Peak Brewing Company will once again be for sale on site and several new food vendors will satisfy cravings. Attendees are encouraged to take a break from cooking and bring their lawn chairs or blankets as seating is limited. The public is reminded of the City’s Clean Air Bylaw No. 3940 which prohibits smoking in public places.

To volunteer, sign up on the website, make contact by email or stop by their information booth on Saturdays at Rotary Park.
