Mission, BC – The I Love Mission campaign has partnered with local eateries and the Mission Folk Music Festival to bring “Menus & Melodies” to Mission this fall.
The series partners local musicians with restaurants and cafes to give customers free lunch or dinner entertainment while you dine. The schedule of events runs throughout October and November and hopes to encourage locals to reconnect with the array of musical talent we have in the community while supporting our local businesses.
“We felt that this was a great way to support two of the hardest-hit sectors during the pandemic, while also offering some fun opportunities for an afternoon or evening out for the community,” said Clare Seeley, Manager of Tourism and Communications.
The “Menus & Melodies” Schedule is as follows but is subject to change. Please go to tourismmission.ca for further details:
