We have two areas available for purchase: front row, which guarantees you a parking spot in the first row, and general admission, which is a spot in the main lot. These contactless events will comply with all health and safety standards as set out by Peterborough Public Health and Provincial guidelines. Come watch some great live acts with us! #PMCRocks
