Envision Financial Presents Coquitlam’s New Summer Concert Series

by Michelle Frilund |

COQUITLAM, BC, March 1, 2017 – Music lovers will enjoy free concerts under the evening sky at Town Centre Park Plaza this summer, thanks to a private sector partnership.

Coquitlam has signed Envision Financial as the Presenting Partner for a new Friday evening concert series planned for July 14, Aug. 11 and Sept. 1. 

Envision’s sponsorship will offset the event expenses and fees for the musical acts performing under the white canopy at Town Centre Park Plaza. The City’s premier new outdoor performance venue offers scenic views of Lafarge Lake and City Centre, seating for up to 1,300 people and easy access from the Lafarge Lake-Douglas SkyTrain station and parking areas. 

Concert-goers can choose to sit on the grassed seating levels or bring their own chair or blanket, while enjoying a homemade picnic or meal purchased from an on-site food truck. 

The concert lineup will be confirmed this spring, and will feature various music styles and both big-name and local artists over the course of the series. In cases of heavy rain, the concerts will be rescheduled. 

Local music lovers are encouraged to mark their calendars for the three concert dates and check www.coquitlam.ca/summerconcerts this spring for more details.

The agreement with Envision Financial is Coquitlam’s latest partnership with the private sector, intended to enhance services to the community while mitigating the impact on taxpayers. From the partners’ perspective, being aligned with Coquitlam’s well-run, well-attended community events helps build positive community relationships while providing exposure to large audiences.

Upcoming partnership opportunities include the popular Coquitlam Celebrates Canada Day on July 1 and the Kaleidoscope Arts Festival returning for a second year on Aug. 12. Both events attract thousands of people from Coquitlam and beyond, and a variety of corporate partnership opportunities.
