FREE: Freedom Park Concert Series Kicks Off on Wednesday

It’s the biggest free outdoor summer concert series in all of Greater Nippertown. Freedom Park Concert Series in Scotia (next to Jumpin’ Jack’s) features a whopping 30 free performances on nearly every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday all summer long. Concerts start at 7pm.

From the rousing Celtic sounds of Get Up Jack (who kick off the series on Wednesday) to the spicy salsa of Alex Torres & His Latin Orchestra to the rollickin’ rockabilly of the Lustre Kings to the boppin’ jazz of the Brian Patneaude Quintet, Freedom Park hosts the cream of Greater Nippertown’s homegrown music scene.
