Going into its 10th year, Music on the Grill is a local secret.

The Venues

Whether you’re catching a show at Evergreen Cultural Centre or outside at TD Community Plaza, there is nothing like a summer concert near Town Centre Park.

Town Centre Park boasts the picturesque Lafarge Lake, so it’s no wonder it was named the Best Public Space by the Canadian Institute of planners in 2017. Home to gardens, trails, a massive picnic area, a playground, a splash park, and more, Town Centre Park is a destination on its own.

Evergreen Cultural Centre, located on the south-west side of the park, isn’t only a music venue. It’s also part art gallery, theatre, performing studio and community space. Evergreen Cultural Centre programs include live theatre, comedy, concerts, family fun, visual arts workshops, festivals, as well as renowned art exhibits.

The Train

It couldn’t be easier to explore the lower-mainland these days thanks to the Evergreen Extension. Hop on the Millennium Line Evergreen Extension and a stone’s throw from Lafarge Lake-Douglas Station sits both Town Centre Park and the Evergreen Cultural Centre. Not to mention a ton of fabulous restaurants in Coquitlam’s City Centre. Getting your festival fix has never been easier.
