2022 Ottawa Music in the Park

Ottawa Music in the Park: What’s new in 2022? Food, friendship and more music than ever!

Ottawa’s free concert series, Music in the Park, dishes up a 2022 season that’ll be like no other!
Beginning on June 25 and continuing on consecutive Saturdays through August, ten musical acts will deliver a delightful blend of retro rock, country and contemporary that’ll carry audiences on a music journey from the ‘50s to the present. That’s the largest schedule the series has ever presented.

What else is new this year? For the first time EVER, there’ll be food at your fingertips! The Special Events Committee is working up a buffet of food vendors during the summer, with one available each concert at the park. Also for the first time, audiences enjoying the Friendship Days concert in August can enjoy two acts in a single night! For that night only, the concert will be expanded from 6 to 9 p.m. instead of ending at 8.

All the rest of the concerts run from 6-8 p.m. All take place in downtown’s historic Washington Park. Admission is free. (All schedules are subject to change for health and safety reasons. If bad weather postpones a performance, it will be rescheduled later this summer.)

Bring a lawn chair or a blanket, or settle on one of the park benches. On-street and lot parking is available nearby.

The concerts are sponsored by Ottawa’s Special Events Committee. Follow SEC on Facebook at Ottawa Special Events Group for information and updates.
