Red Deer’s Ross Street Patio sets up for another season of live music

Patio tables and seating will be set up on Monday, May 13

Red Deer’s Ross Street Patio will be opened in time for the May long weekend.

The outdoor stage and seating area is being set up Monday for the summer season. This means the right lane of Ross Street, from 49th Avenue to 50th Avenue, will be closed for the season to accommodate the patio.

Picnic tables and umbrellas are being provided by the city, and residents are invited to pull up a chair and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

A lineup of free outdoor concerts is being organized by the city and the Downtown Business Association throughout the summer, featuring a variety of artists and musical genres.

The first performance is on Tuesday, May 30, at 11:30 a.m. The concert series continues through Saturday, Sept. 14, on the following schedule:

* Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

* Wednesdays, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

* Friday patio parties, 6 to 9 p.m. on June 14, July 12 and Aug. 9.

* Saturday socials, 6 to 10 p.m. on June 20, Aug. 17 and Sept. 14

In the event of inclement weather, Friday patio parties will move to The Hub on Ross, 4936

50th St.
