January 04, 2020 - Music Weekends in downtown Guelph

Music Weekends is back for a fourth year to carry you through the post-holiday stretch. Ranging from sing-a-long covers to rockabilly beats, Music Weekends is a 10 week series taking place every Saturday and Sunday afternoon from January 4th to March 8th. All downtown, all organized by local promoters, and all great quality. We've even thrown in an extra special one for the kids at The Making-Box on Family Day.

Launched in 2017, the series brings together local promoters and is aimed at music lovers who can't always stay up late enough to enjoy Guelph's lively late night music scene. Music Weekends welcomes people of all ages who want to sing with their friends, dance with their children, and still be home in time for supper. These events are all 'Pay What You Can', and all monies collected go directly back into the local music industry.
