Don’t Miss the Final Live! In Lake Country Concert this Friday Night

Lake Country, BC  This season of Live! In Lake Country has been the best yet with thousands of audience members taking in the free Friday night concerts in Swalwell Park and this Friday’s act, Ezra Kwizera, is sure to be a crowd pleaser with his African-inspired sounds.

The crowds at this year’s concerts have broken attendance records, making this the best season yet of Live! In Lake Country.

“We knew that people were ready for these concerts to make a comeback after pandemic restrictions limited our outdoor activities for the past two year, but we did not expect to see the response we have and we couldn’t be happier,” says Ryan Donn, Cultural Development Coordinator for the District of Lake Country. “People came out in droves and filled the park with such great energy and excitement, it was truly inspiring. The entertainers have had a fantastic time performing for such enthusiastic audience members.”

Ezra Kwizera is headlining the final concert this Friday, August 26. Now based in Vancouver, Kwizera is one of the most notable artists and music producers in Africa and internationally. He performs energetic yet soulful melodies, along with his signature unique mix of genres and cultures, with the rich undertones of someone who has seen and survived the hardships of war, poverty, and growing up as a Rwandan refugee in Uganda.

The music starts at 7 p.m. with the music to keep Swalwell Park hopping until 9 p.m. Live! in Lake Country performances are presented by TD. Season sponsors include, TELUS, Okanagan Dodge and Kiwanis. Swalwell Park, located at 10090 Bottom Wood Lake Road, is also host to the Lake Country Farmers and Crafters Market on Fridays, with extended hours to accommodate concert goers.
