Be a Music Lover

Since 1919, Grand Bend’s Main Beach has been a popular venue for live music. First with the Lakeview Casino, which operated for five decades until 1969, then with Canada Day Celebration events and now with the addition of Summer Sunset Sounds. Since 2014, this successful and popular concert series has offered beach-goers Sunday and holiday Monday performances in July and August. The beach now boasts a permanent stage – the Rotary Community Stage.
