Summer 2016 concerts at the Wells Harbor Park
The concerts at the Wells Harbor Park are one of the best kept secrets of the summer. Admission is free, if you enjoy the concert you are encouraged to make a donation to offset expenses. On the busiest nights there is always room for three times the number of concert-goers. Plenty of free parking close by.
There is also ample room to move around if you feel like dancing or take a stroll down to the harbor with your sweety.
Bring a cushion if you plan on using the benches or folding chairs or a blanket just in case the benches are all taken. Concerts start at 6:30. Some insect repellent is a good idea on many nights but you may be pleasantly surprised. On some evenings the breeze is just enough to keep the bugs at bay.
This schedule is for the 2016 series of concerts.
