BCLC is a state-owned company that regulates and provides legal and responsible gambling and lottery products in the province. A social enterprise that reinvests 100% of its retail and online proceeds into the province. As a company for social purposes, it also organizes many community events that benefit the local population and economy.
Camloops and BCLC announced that Music in the Park will return after two years. The festival was not held last year or the year before because of health and safety concerns. But now the concert series is back and locals can enjoy performances such as Sabrina Wicks, Shattered Blue, Richard Graham and the Black Beats.
Peter Weeme, BCLC’s Chief Social Purpose Officer and Vice President, said a few words about this case. He commented that as an organisation for social purposes, the royal family is committed to the organisation of events that contribute to the social and cultural structure of camroups. Crown has been a sponsor of the event since 1994.
Ter Wime went on to say that he is very excited that the BCLC will be able to bring back Camloops residents to the festival at Rotary Bandshell in Riverside Park, which will be filled with countless talented artists. He also urged everyone to tune in for the thrilling concert headline of BCLC’s annual Midsummer Music Jam on July 27, 2022.
The full 2022 Music In The Park night entertainment schedule is available on the city’s official website. Visitors are also encouraged to bring in non-corrupt food donations every Friday to support the Camloops Food Bank. At the same time, food truck Wednesdays will also be making a comeback at Riverside Park from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. from July 6, 2022.
