Rock the Sun Concert Series Returning to Gyro Park
Because summer is simply better with live music.

Penticton, BC— Some of the best musical talent from Penticton and the Okanagan area will be on stage in Gyro Park as Rock the Sun returns for the summer starting this Friday night.

“This event screams summertime in Penticton,” said Aidan Mayes, who along with her singing partner Mandy Cole is performing on Friday at the Gyro Park Bandshell from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. “It’s a dream to share my music in a setting like this: what could be better than enjoying a perfect summer evening, listening to free live music with crowds of supporters – local and visitors alike,” Mayes added.

Presented by the Downtown Penticton Association, Rock the Sun will take place on select Friday nights throughout July and August, each with a different artist who will bring their own unique style of music and entertainment. Music genres will span folk, country, rock, pop and more, and all will be family-friendly.

“My band and I are really looking forward to Rock the Sun,” said Joshua Smith who’s on stage August 24, adding, “Penticton is one of my favourite places to perform.”

There’s no cost to attend the concerts. Folks are invited to simply head downtown with their lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy the fabulous performances and music. Also for convenience, food trucks will be on site making it easy to buy something to eat or drink throughout the evening.

“It’s is the perfect way to kick off the weekend with family and friends,” said Allin, also noting that for Penticton visitors, Gyro Park is just a short walk from Okanagan Beach.

In addition to Rock the Sun, the Downtown Penticton Association has launched Live@Lunch which brings live music to Nanaimo Square each Tuesday to Friday from noon to 1:00 pm all summer long.
