We are thrilled to announce the 2023 instalment of ‘GJF in the Parks.’ These free outdoor events will be Festival Preview Concerts on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September, 2-5pm each day, the weekend before the GJF (14-17 September). Each day will feature two groups due to return to Guelph for the Friday Night Street Music Party in Market Square, 15 September: Lemon Trubaci and Alpha Rhythm Roots. To round out the Parks program, we welcome back Libation Street Band, who delighted audiences both at the FNSMP and as part of GJF in the Parks (albeit in different parks) in 2022.
