he Downtown Chilliwack Business Improvement Association (BIA) and the 2014 Party in the Park Committee are pleased to welcome back Trevor McDonald as the Entertainment Coordinator for this year’s Party.


Trevor McDonald was the entertainment coordinator and stage host for three Party seasons from 2009 to 2011, but has been focused on other opportunities in recent years.


Earlier this year, the BIA announced other changes to the 2014 edition of Party in the Park, including a condensed 4-night schedule and a renewed focus on homegrown talent for the stage.


New BIA Executive Director, Kyle Williams, who also chairs the Party in the Park Committee, claims that Trevor was the logical choice for the position, and is excited to have him back on board after a two-year absence. “Trevor is a great fit for our stage and works very hard towards the promotion of local talent.” explains Williams. “He is a busy guy, so we were excited to hear that the new format would probably work with his schedule. We just needed to make it happen.” 


Trevor is proud to again be a part of one of the community’s key events. “It’s no secret that I’m passionate about our downtown,” he says. “In the three years I was involved, we focused on a community get-together on Friday nights and that’s what we’re going to continue to create here in the heart of our city.”


“I am a huge fan of local talent and have always believed we need look no further than our back yard for top calibre entertainment,” Trevor adds.
