Summer is here, and with the warmer weather comes more festivals, celebrations and events all across town. Here in Waterloo, we’re host to a handful of free concerts every year. Williams and McDaniel Property Management wanted to make it easy for you to pick and choose which events you’ll take advantage of this season, so they’ve made a list of all the best free concerts taking place in Waterloo this summer.
Pinegrove Apartments (145 Lucan Avenue), named after the beautiful pine trees that surround the building, are just around the corner from one of this year’s main music venues — the Waterloo Public Square (75 King Street South). Here you’ll find fresh acoustic talent every Friday from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. for the Acoustic Noon Concert series happening all summer long. Pinegrove Apartments are just over a kilometre away from this venue, so you’re only a 15-minute walk from live, free entertainment. This year’s lineup includes everything from blues and soul, to contemporary and classic rock.
Summer Concerts in the Square is another summer concert series happening in — you guessed it — the Waterloo Public Square (again, just a 15-minute jaunt from Pinegrove Apartments). From June 8th to August 24th, swing by the Square every Monday (except August 3rd, that’s a civic holiday) to start your week off with some live music. Some of this year’s talented acts include Sandy and Sue, Adrian and Kim, Red Hot Ramble and Latin Fusion Trio.
If you have a few Sundays to spare this summer, why don’t you head down to the Waterloo Public Square for their weekly Drum Circle series? Led by Bev Gooden, this series is fun, free and interactive. All ages and experience levels are encouraged to join this exciting weekly event — whether you’re a drum expert or a first-timer!
Our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, is happy to provide some fun ideas to keep you entertained this summer. Be sure to check out the City of Waterloo’s website for more upcoming events.
