The Sunshine Cabaret summer concert lineup comes at a price that can’t be beat: free.

Now a summer staple, the Downtown Penticton Association offers the free concert series in Gyro Park throughout July and August. Musical entertainment, with an emphasis on local performers in a range of genres, is featured every Friday and Saturday night from 7 to 9 p.m.

Concerts kicked off last weekend and will run until the end of August, going out with a bang.

“We are planning a bigger finale act that we will announce at a later date. We haven’t had a big name act to finish off the concert series for a couple years and this year we wanted to do it up right,” said Kerri Milton, executive director of the Downtown Penticton Association.

Sunshine Cabaret summer concert series in Gyro Park schedule includes; Anja Jazz Trio on July 18, Nankama and Tamabiko Taiko on July 19, Flashback on July 25, Fluxx on July 26, Uncorked on Aug. 1, The World’s Largest Trio on Aug. 2, Willy Blizzard on Aug. 15, The Pernell Reichart Band and Jordan Dean on Aug. 16 and the special closing act to be announced later will perform on Aug. 29 and 30.
