After a two-year absence, Live at the Lakeside returns for at least one occasion

Live at the Lakeside is back in Cochrane — at least for Canada Day, and more often during the summer if enough volunteers step forward to help run it.

Director of community services Jason Boyer reminds us that centered around the Commando Pavilion, Live at the Lake brings together non-profit groups staffing the kitchen or conducting a fundraiser with craft vendors and, of course, musicians.

“We’re looking to get a talent pool or list together of local musicians that are trying to hone their craft and build themselves up on a bigger stage and give them the opportunity to play in front of 100 to 300 people,” says Boyer.

He notes this is a revival of Live at the Lakeside.

“We weren’t able to run it for the last two years due to Covid, which is unfortunate. We had a lot of requests from our public that they wanted it, but we didn’t have the approval of the health unit and there was a couple lockdowns to go through, and stuff like that.”

The big advantage to the Pavilion is that if it rains, the musicians, vendors and audience can all be moved indoors.

Volunteer workers or musicians can become involved by emailing recreation@cochraneontario.com.
