Deputy Mayor Steve Payne says the City is supporting more than fourteen performers as well as local artists through Arts in the Park this year.

“Working with the NWT Arts Council, Music NWT, and NWT Arts has helped us to put on this series of community events that celebrate northern talent,” he adds.

Guests for the entirety of both events have been announced.

For this week, Jim Taylor and Ben Russo will be kicking things off Wednesday afternoon while Ryan McCord and PrimeTimePrine will be performing Thursday evening.

Other entertainment for the summer includes performances by Andrea Bettger, Wesley Hardisty, PARTS, and more.
