Summer Concert Series

2022 Summer Season Poster

The Concord Band returns to the Fruitlands Summer Stage on Wednesday evenings. Concerts begin at 7:15PM, Gates Open 5:00pm

Gather on the lawn for a picnic concert with stunning sunset views. The Concord Band will treat concert-goers to a fun roster of timeless music, including pieces memorializing historic events, show tunes, holiday favorites and more.

Bring your blanket, lawn chairs and picnic basket. There is plenty of room on the concert lawn to spread out. Dogs are welcome to join for these picnic concerts and just must remain on leash while on the grounds at Fruitlands.

The audience is encouraged to Pre-register for quicker entry. In the event of rain forcing cancellation, all ticket holders will be contacted via email in advance of showtime. We will be able to rebook or refund any cancelled sales. Questions? Contact Catherine Shortliffe.
