Is There Parking On-Site?


MINIMAL at best! Our recommendation is to park at the Burlington Centre and take advantage of the shuttle provided. Shuttle schedule will be available closer to the time, but will run approximately every 30 minutes from 4pm-11:30pm. Alternatively, Taxi, Uber, Lyft are all viable options.




Are Lawn Chairs or Umbrellas Allowed?


Unfortunately, due to safety concerns and visability issues, lawn chairs and umbrellas are not allowed during evening performances in the park. If you require accessible seating, arrangements can be made in advance by emailing info@soundofmusic.ca. We are happy to provide accommodation on an as needed basis, including but not limited to, an accessible seating area provided with good sight lines to the stage.

Spencer Smith Park is 100% non-smoking. Smoking is prohibited everywhere on concert grounds. We are not responsible for any action that authorities may take for contradiction of this bylaw. Enforcement may include fine, and removal from the event. Edibles and other cannabis related products are not permitted within concert grounds.




Will There Be Food and Drinks?


Yes! We will have a variety of Food Trucks and vendors in the park during the festival. Alcoholic beverages will also be available in the tents for anyone 19+ with valid government ID. Not to mention the plethora of great restaurants located in downtown Burlington!




What If It Rains?


This is a rain or shine event. We don’t stop the show for a bit of rain and hope you will still come out to show your support to these amazing artists regardless of the weather! We do stop the show for thunderstorms, extreme weather, and any other reason we feel it’s not safe to carry on.
