Free music and a trip to Osheaga with First Canadian Place

What’s better than free music in the summertime? A free trip to an amazing summer music festival, that’s what! First Canadian Place, in the heart of Toronto’s Financial district, will be hosting a free summer concert series called “In the Park,” showcasing some great Canadian talent on their outdoor stage. To celebrate the start of the series, First Canadian Place will be giving away a trip to Osheaga 2015 in Montreal! We’ve also got our own great prize to give away, but you’ll have to keep reading to find out what it is.

Starting on July 23rd the In the Park series will run every Thursday for three weeks. On July 30, Canadian country sweetheart Kira Isabella will make her In the Park debut. Since the release of her sophomore album Caffeine & Big Dreams in 2014, the Ottawa-born singer/songwriter has earned two CCMA Awards as well as two JUNO Award nominations, including her most recent nomination for 2015 Country Album of the Year. On August 6, country/roots band John And Jacob will take their turn on the In the Park stage. The band has had a busy year in 2014, taking the summer festival season by storm with appearances at SXSW, Bonnaroo, Hangout, Firefly and the CMA Festival. As well, John And Jacob shared their songwriting skills by co-writing the Billboard #1 hit “Done” with The Band Perry, and their current single “Be My Girl” was recently featured on ABC’s hit TV show Nashville.

The In the Park series will kickoff with a surprise concert on July 23rd. It’s so secret that we can’t even tell you what it is, but what we can tell you is that one lucky winner will get the chance to win a trip for two to OSHEAGA! The prize includes Porter flights, accommodations at the Alt Hotel Montreal by Le Germain and two three-day Osheaga festival passes. In order to enter, contestants will be asked to visit a sign up table onsite on July 23 between 12:15 p.m. and 12:45 p.m. The winner will be selected and announced by approximately 12:50 p.m. and in order to redeem the prize the winner must be onsite and present ID.

AND, since we didn’t want First Canadian Place to have all the prize-giving fun, we have a prize of our own for one of you lucky readers: a $100 Gift card from Brookfield for use at First Canadian Place! This goldmine of a card can be used at any of the fine retail and food outlets at First Canadian Place, including Aldo and M for Mendocino (one of our faves!) for great fashion, Kupfert and Kim and Amaya Express for delicious lunch options and Red’s Wine Tavern for a full drinking and dining experience. Simply tweet “I want to be In the Park with @weraddicted @FirstCanadianPl #addictedtoFCP.” Winner will be selected at random, and must be 19 years of age or older and a resident of Ontario. Contest closes July 22nd at 5pm. Good luck!
