Enjoy Free Friday Night Concerts All Summer in Downtown Lee’s Summit!
Dust off your lawn chairs and shake out your blankets, the Music in the Park summer concert series begins Friday, May 27 and lasts until Labor Day. The Music in the Park summer concerts are brought to you by Downtown Lee’s Summit Main Street, Inc., in partnership with Bank of Lee’s Summit, Lee’s Summit Journal, The Travel Source and Lakewood Counseling, TMC.
The concerts are free to the public and are held in Howard Station Park between 2nd & 3rd Streets on SE Main. Music begins at 6:30 pm and ends at 10:00 pm. The public is encouraged to listen to music, walk around downtown, and visit downtown shops and restaurants. Plenty of shade offers a cool way to enjoy these fantastic local musicians and performers.
Local musicians volunteer their time and talent for the Music in the Park concerts. To kick off the Music in the Park season the first Friday night concert is for children. Pa Apple, The Jack Snaps and Kidz Krue are sure to have every child’s attention! This year’s line-up includes returning seasoned bands, as well as solo artists just starting their careers. HeatherAnne Norbury, co-coordinator for the Downtown Lee's Summit Music in the Park series, along with Erik Karlsson is very passionate about the free Friday night concerts. "I am so excited by the lineup this summer. I'm always amazed at the exceptionally talented musicians so willing to donate their time and energy to our summer concert series. Music in the Park is a great venue for local talent and a fun time for anyone looking for an economical night out."
The Lee’s Summit Parks & Recreation Summer Concerts are also held on Friday evenings in City Hall Plaza, helping to ensure free Friday night concerts in Downtown Lee’s Summit all summer long.
