Arts Council of New Westminster

Music By The River






Concerts, Festivals


The Arts Council of New Westminster in conjunction with Alex Jopson of City to Suburb Real Estate Group and the City of New Westminster are excited to be brining back MUSIC BY THE RIVER at Westminster Pier Park on six Thursday nights in July and August 2018.

Following the success of last year, this summer concert series will again take place against the Fraser River backdrop on Thursday nights from 6-8pm. Once again at the Eats at the Pier concession stand we will be serving drinks from New West’s own Steel and Oak Brewing Co. and Pacific Breeze winery. The entire park will be one massive site-licensed area allowing you to take your drink anywhere within the park!

Enjoy every aspect of this beautiful park, whether it be the beach volleyball courts, hammocks, grass fields, basketball courts, or breathe taking views of the Fraser River. Be sure to take your drink all the way down to take a selfie with Wow Westminster public art, New Westminster’s Giant W. Make sure to plan your trip to the event, as the park is within a short walk from Columbia and New Westminster Skytrain Stations.
