Menus & Melodies events coming to Mission restaurants

Residents can enjoy free live music with their meals

Who doesn’t like to listen to some live entertainment while enjoying their meal?

The I Love Mission campaign has partnered with local eateries and the Mission Folk Music Festival to bring Menus & Melodies to Mission.

The series partners local musicians with restaurants and cafes to give customers free lunch or dinner entertainment while they dine. The schedule of events runs throughout Oct. and Nov. and hopes to encourage locals to reconnect with the array of musical talent in the community while supporting local businesses.

“We felt that this was a great way to support two of the hardest-hit sectors during the pandemic, while also offering some fun opportunities for an afternoon or evening out for the community,” explained Clare Seeley, Manager of Tourism and Communications for the City of Mission.
