For Immediate Release


Timmins, ON – The music scene is thriving in the City with the Heart of Gold, and Tourism Timmins is issueing a public call to musicians interested in performing this summer.

Tourism Timmins, James Toyota, la Caisse Populaire, Alliance and Tim Hortons are proud to present the 10th Annual Summer Concert Series hosted at the Schumacher Lion’s McIntyre Park, and the 5th Annual at Bannerman Park in Porcupine. DJ Taz will be back once again and will be working alongside Tourism Timmins to provide a high energy show each and every week of the Summer Concert Series.

“With the ongoing Hollinger Park remediation work and based on last year’s success of hosting the Summer Concert Series from the Schumacher Lion’s McIntyre Park we will once again stage the 10-week Wednesday evening production from the Goldcorp Pavillion at the beautiful and scenic Schumacher Lion’s McIntyre Park,” said Manager of Tourism and Events Guy Lamarche. The east end series will be hosted from the scenic Bannerman Park overlooking Porcupine Lake. “Members of the Lion’s Club and the Bannerman Park Committee put in countless hours maintaining and beautifying these parks, which are often under-utilized. We hope to create better awareness of these two gems with each featuring a covered pavilion and ample parking.”

“DJ Taz is excited to be working alongside Tourism Timmins to continue the tradition of providing residents and visitors with quality, live music every week. This long standing tradition is appreciated by the thousands of residents who support the program each and every year and by our many talented artists who get to share their passion with the many in attendance each week. To be a part of this exciting tradition is like a dream come true” said Peter Lawryniw of DJ Taz.

Summer Concert Series – McIntyre Park: June 26, July 3, 10, 17, 24,31, August 7, 14, 21, 28 (6pm-9pm)
