The Welland Recreational Canal Corporation is host of the IlluminAqua series of concerts. As "stewards" of the recreational canal, the role of the WRCC is to develop and maintain the Welland Recreational Waterway.
In 2007, the Welland Recreational Canal Corporation hosted the inaugural concert series to scores of citizens and visitors.
In 2008, in association with the City of Welland’s 150th Anniversary, IlluminAqua was the marquee event.
The construction of the waterside Merritt Park Amphitheatre in 2009 added to the amazing atmosphere of Merritt Park and to IlluminAqua.
With suggestions from the community, WRCC strives to present award winning, multi-genre artists that are sure to please audiences of all ages, all walks and all cultures.
