Concerts on the Farm is a new summer festival of open-air concerts over two days on an organic farm in the idyllic Southlands in Vancouver, featuring live hour-long performances by guest musicians.

This Festival is inspired by the joy of summer harvest and sustainable farming at Inner City Farms. At a time when the coronavirus pandemic has separated us and our connections have become virtual, Concerts on the Farm brings together the essentials that awaken our senses: the sights and sounds of a bountiful green farm and live classical music.

Safety of the audience, the performers and the volunteers will be a priority, with social distancing standards maintained and appropriate sanitation facilities provided. See our complete COVID-19 safety protocol below.

Please arrive 30 minutes before concert start time to enjoy a tour of the farm. Seating will be provided. You are welcome to bring your own blanket for open seating on the grass. There is free on-street parking in the area. Please note that tickets are non-refundable and the Festival will take place rain or shine.
