COVID-19 NOTICE – On Tuesday, March 17th, the Government of Ontario declared a state of emergency, prohibiting gatherings of more than 50 people and ordering the closure of all bars and restaurants (except those that can provide take-out and delivery) until Tuesday, March 31st. This means all scheduled live music and other performance events at pubs and clubs are cancelled. nightlifeNOW will be on hiatus until the state of emergency has been lifted and bars and restaurants can reopen and begin hosting live music events again.

 

Every Thursday, we publish live music events at pubs, clubs, and restaurants in Peterborough and the Kawarthas based on information that venues provide to us directly or post on their website or social media channels. Here are the listings for the week of Thursday, March 12 to Wednesday, March 18.

If you’re a pub, club, or restaurant owner and want to be included in our weekly listings, please email our nightlifeNOW editor at nightlife@kawarthanow.com. For concerts and live music events at other venues, check out our Concerts & Live Music page.
