We’re kicking it up a notch again this summer.

The free outdoor pop-up music series set in multiple locations throughout Gastown has made a comeback.

Gastown Unplugged is an initiative put on by our businesses to help support local artists. From jazz to slow jams and everything in between, you can now enjoy live music from the comfort of your favourite patio or while walking down the cobblestone streets every Thursday during the summer months.

Stay tuned here for the weekly schedule and special guest updates or on the @mygastown Instagram page.

The streets are alive with the sound of music.

Every Thursday. 5-8pm

Maple Tree Square
