Strike up the bands! It’s summer concert time in Ridgeway!

Showcase of Niagara talent begins Sunday June 25 at Ridgeway’s Village Square

It’s a sure sign of summer when Ridgeway’s Concerts on the Ridge begins its outdoor concert series. It’s the second season of live entertainment showcasing Niagara talent.

The Concerts on the Ridge Series has quickly established itself as the place to be on Sunday evenings! This year’s concerts are: June 25, July 23, 30, August 23 and September 3, 2017. All of the concerts commerce at 7:00 PM and are free to the public. A goodwill offering is collected to help with the funding of the concerts and also to begin fundraising for new lighting displays in downtown Ridgeway.

The philosophy of the Concerts on the Ridge is to offer local Niagara talent the opportunity to showcase in their hometown market. “We strongly feel that Niagara has great amateur and semi-professional talent to share”, said organizer Mary-Lou Ambrose-Little. “Our 2016 performers included Spencer McKenzie, The Bryce Moore Band, Finnegan’s Wake, Lincoln Concert Band and Kindred.”

The entertainers for the 2017 series:

  • June 25 – McPherson’s Rant
  • July 23 – Peace River Band
  • August 6 – Cameron Lee and Mary Lou Minor & Sideroad 3
  • August 27 – The Jimmy Marando Swing Band
  • September 3 – Sunset Rebels

Downtown Ridgeway is truly the spot to be on Sunday evenings with much to see and do! These concerts are on alternate weeks with our neighbours in Crystal Beach who offer the Waterfront Series, so there will be lots of great entertainment available this summer in Fort Erie!

Throughout the summer more information on our performers will be posted on the Concerts in the Ridge Facebook Group and on the RBIA’s new web-site: www.historicridgeway.com.
