May 13, 2020:
It is with great disappointment that the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors announces the cancellation of the 2020 edition of Algoma Concerts in the Park along with a couple of other summer events. Please read the complete media release here.
Please know that many factors needed to be addressed in making this decision including the uncertainly of COVID-19 along with contractual and financial logistics with entertainment groups.
Concerts in the Park takes place entirely due to sponsorships. Under the current business climate we could not in good conscience ask our businesses, many of whom have been closed or operating in a limited capacity, for money to put on this large event.
Different scenarios on how the event could still take place in a safe manner were taken into consideration.
We fully understand the disappointment as well as the impact this decision has on our community.
Algoma looks forward to celebrating with you in 2021!

Fronted by Danny and Michelle Jerabek, Copper Box is a genre-bending celebration of fusion roots rock that channels the rowdy communal feel of a small-town party with their refreshing, gutsy, americana sound of artists like the legendary Esteban Jordan (the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion), Doug Sahm, Clifton Chenier, Los Lobos, and CCR…a must see!
