What We're About
Inspirational Music in the Park started based on a vision to provide an alternate “stage” for Christian/gospel musical artists to use their talents to bless its listeners. Since then, it has helped springboard some artists into award-winning statuses, plus has provided “music with the message of hope” for increasingly larger audiences coming from Brampton, the Greater Toronto Area, and other parts of Southern Ontario.
Inspirational Music in the Park has grown to attract audiences of up to 500 since its inception in summer 2000 and has a roster of over 400 Canadian Christian/gospel musical and performing arts talent groups, 90 of which are featured during an annual 13-concert summer series.
