PerthBandBannerSummer Concert Series

Bring a lawn chair and enjoy a performance by the Perth Citizens’ Band at 7:30 p.m. at the bandstand behind the Town Hall.


When: Thu July 9, 2015 and July 23, 2015

All concerts are FREE to the public and are held in historic Stewart Park just behind the Perth Town Hall in downtown Perth.

The Perth Citizens’ Band has been an integral part of the musical and cultural heritage of the Town of Perth since 1852 and is the oldest continuously operating band in Canada. The continuity of the band from 1852 has been recorded in a book entitled, “ Sound the Trumpet “ written by local archivist, Daphne Overhill, published in 2002.

The band is comprised of members from Perth and surrounding areas of Lanark County. Every Tuesday night at 7:30 the band meets for rehearsal in a specially designated room upstairs in the Perth Town Hall. A wide variety of music is rehearsed from the bands’ extensive library, ranging from classics by Mozart, Handel etc. through the Gay Nineties, The Swing Era, the Beetles, Broadway, and contemporary works. Band membership is about 50 and includes all ages from teens to seniors with skill levels from beginners to professional. Some members also contribute time to other local groups such as the “Saints and Sinners” , The Perth Community Choir, and The Last Duel Brass Quintet. The band is directed by Brian Tackaberry, a professional high school music teacher.

Music is performed in public throughout the Town and surrounding areas including venues such as churches, schools, special events, parades and an annual summer concert series on the bandstand in Stewart Park behind the Town Hall. Historically, the band has played at Ontario’s Bicentennial celebrations in Toronto, the sending of the Perth’s Mammoth Cheese to The Chicago World’s Fair and more recently, at The Governor Generals Garden Party at Rideau hall and the Town band Festival in Orono, Ontario.

The free concerts in Stewart Park are performed every other Thursday at 7:30 PM starting in the second week of June through the third week of August and include a Strawberry Social starting at 7 PM for the second concert. The band does a number of parades throughout the year including the Perth Fair Parade, parades for various local celebrations in other towns and typically four Santa Claus Parades in various towns. A major part of the bands funding for operating expenses comes from these parades. The band also does an annual Christmas concert, an annual “ Last Night At The Proms Concert ” plus a number of other concerts during each year.

The band works during rehearsal times and socializes during breaks. Many lasting relationships are formed. Band membership includes married couples and children all volunteering their time for their own benefit and for the benefit of their audiences.

headerbgOntario Family Fishing Week

When: July 4, 2015 to July 12, 2015


During this week you can fish licence free on any lake or river in Ontario.
Info: 705-748-6324 or

Ontario Family Fishing Events is a province-wide opportunity for Canadian residents to fish Ontario waters without the otherwise mandatory fishing version outdoors card. The Ontario Government designates two periods throughout the year as license-free, February 14-16, 2015 (12:01 a.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Monday) and July 4-12, 2015 (12:01 a.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday). During all other time periods, Canadian residents between the ages of 18 and 64 years must purchase a valid fishing license to legally fish in Ontario.

There has never been a better time to introduce a friend to fishing!

Participants fishing without a license must fish under the Conservation fishing license limits which are set out in the current Ontario Recreational Fishing Regulations Summary. With the exception of the licensing requirement, Ontario fishing regulations, fees and limits continue to apply during license-free days. Printed copies of the summary are available at licence issuers and ServiceOntario Centres.

Events such as festivals, clinics, derbies and workshops are hosted across the province. To find an event near you, visit the Events List & Map. Each event provides a great opportunity to get outside, spend some wholesome time with the family, and develop a strong connection with conservation through the enjoyment of fishing.

As anglers, we shape the future of fishing in Ontario! Always fish with care and concern for our precious natural resources.

About The Comedy of Errors

When two sets of identical twins separated at birth are brought to the same town by circumstance, mistaken identities abound! Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, the result is a series of wildly comical mishaps which challenge the notion of truly knowing one’s friend, spouse, neighbour and self!


Meet the Fools – Our Cast and Crew

Directed by Catriona Leger, this season’s case includes Warren Bain, AL Connors, Scott Florence, Gabrielle Lazarovitz, Geoff McBride, Katie Ryerson. Featuring costume design by Vanessa Imeson and set design by David Benedict Brown.
