The Twilight Concert Series is a weekly community event featuring live music on Wednesday evenings in the summer at Fraser River Heritage Park in Mission.
Twilight Concerts at Fraser River Heritage Park
In 2019, the Mission Twilight Concert Series celebrated its 29th year and took place between 7:00 and 8:00 pm from June 7th until August 30th. Unfortunately, the concerts in 2020 were cancelled because of COVID-19 and they didn’t happen in 2021 either. In 2022 the Mission Twilight Concert Series returns with weekly shows from July 6th until August 31st.
The event is held at Fraser River Heritage Park which is located at 7494 Mary Street in Mission. Mission itself is a rural community in the Fraser Valley on the north side of the Fraser River from Abbotsford.

What to Expect
At the Mission Twilight Concert Series you can expect to see between 100 and up to about 700 people in lawn chairs and on blankets enjoying an evening of live music in the park. Average attendance is up to about 400, but it depends on the featured band and the weather.
There is usually a bit of food for sale and the park has a play area nearby for kids. There is also a restaurant at the park and folk on its outdoor patio have good views of the concert.
A lot of the attendees are from Mission, but folk come from other parts of the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland too.
Tips and Advice
Below are some tips to help you make the most out of your experience at the event.
TIP #1: Take a blanket or chair to sit on, and an umbrella if it looks like rain.
TIP #2: Explore the region while you’re in the area. Rolley Lake Provincial Park and Stave Falls aren’t too far away and the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival runs most years beginning in early to mid-August. The Sunflower Festival is about a half-hour drive away and well worth a visit.
TIP #3: Coming via the Lougheed Highway, the turnoff is at Stave Lake Street. From there turn right at 5th Avenue and you’ll find the park at the end of the street.
