Summer Concert Series

About the Series

Family and friends can gather at either Emerson or Waldstein Parks for an evening of good friends and great entertainment. Bring a picnic basket, your lawn chair, and a group of people eager to have a good time, then sit back, and enjoy a variety of music including pop, folk, oldies, bluegrass, country and rock. Children can play on the equipment within the park as well as in the splash pad or dance along in front of the stage to the music. Access the Summer Concert Series schedule.

Visit one of the many booths set up offering giveaways, information on other town events and services offered by local sponsors. The concert series is always in need of sponsors committed to supporting the Recreation Department, and who would like to advertise their business at the same time. We are currently accepting sponsor donations.

Additional Information
In case of inclement weather, cancellations will be made by 3 p.m. the day of the performance. Check online or call 617-730-2069
We will do our best to reschedule any cancelled concerts for the remaining Wednesday evenings at the end of August.
