Our weekly nightlifeNOW column is temporarily on hiatus. Effective January 5, pubs and restaurants in Ontario are closed to indoor dining due to the pandemic and all live music events have been cancelled until at least January 26.

Every Thursday, we publish live music events at pubs and restaurants in Peterborough and the greater Kawarthas region 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, December 23 to Wednesday, December 29.

If you’re a pub 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.
