The Quesnel Downtown Association (QDA) wants you to come downtown Tuesdays after 5 p.m. and enjoy the live music.

Alive After 5 launched at Spirit Square with free entertainment by Kim Durban on Tuesday, May 24.

“The biggest thing is to get people into the downtown, bring back events and music, and just get that buzz going around again,” said QDA manager Patty Morgan, noting they hope to add local food trucks.

The novel coronavirus had resulted in event postponements and cancellations after it was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020.

“Alive After 5 had been in the process over the last couple of years, so we’re excited to get it going,” Morgan added.

A new artist will be featured every Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. until the end of summer. Chairs are available, although people are more than welcome to bring their own.

Alive After 5 is supported by the City of Quesnel and the Northern Development Initiative Trust.
