The 2018 RBC Noon Hour Concert Series presents nine energetic outdoor performances in St George’s Square every Friday in June and July. 

Free to the public, we welcome head nodders, foot tappers, dancers, joiner-inners and anyone else in between. Pull up a brightly-coloured sun lounger under one of our many sunshades, or perch on the Capistrano patio and enjoy the show whilst eating freshly made food and drinking a cold beer.

The fun starts on Friday, June 1 with a performance from the Grand River Ramblers, an Americana, bluegrass, folk jam group from Cambridge.

It continues every Friday lunchtime up to and including July 29 when local favourite Kent Smith will round off the series. There’s a high school band in the mix (Eleven 11), saucy country (Ginger St. James) and cartoony rock n' roll (Lucas Stagg).

Brought to you by the Downtown Guelph Business Association in partnership with RBC, the series is professionally curated by experienced local promoter, Kaleidoscope Music. Our ‘roadies’ from local group Community of Hearts will take care of setting up the show as well as getting the party started.
