"Summer Concerts in the Park"
Creating Community through Music

Westborough’s FIRST annual “Summer Concerts in the Park” is looking spectacular … with a mix of national and regional musical acts performing on warm summer nights and Sunday afternoons.  Sally Johnson, a long time resident of Westborough, has been promoting music for 16 years.  She follows the tour schedules of regional and national artists and attends music conferences & festivals each year.  With her expertise at booking talented musicians and your participation in attending the shows ... this summer series is destined to be successful!  Seating is on the lawn ~ Bring a blanket or lawn chair, bubbles, a picnic spread or eat-in / take-out at a local restaurant and enjoy the music!

The concerts are free to the public, however we will ask for a small suggested donation at each concert.  

 

Thank you to our amazing sponsors!
