August 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Friday, repeating until August 12, 2022

The Amherst BID is thrilled to announce the lineup for the second annual Friday Night Summer Concert Series on the South Common!

On Friday, July 22 the BID presents local artists Dawn Lepere & Jeff Starns opening for blues singer-songwriter Eric Lee (LINK). On July 29th we welcome UMASS back to the Common for the second year of Jazz in July in downtown Amherst – a not to miss event featuring UMASS staff, students, and a couple of “ringers” you MUST hear to believe!  On August 5 the Grammy-winning Children’s performer MISTER G will take the stage before The Soul Magnets step on to rock our world! Finalizing the series on August 12 we go classic country with Rosie Porter Trio and then pop-rock the night away to all your favs with The Maxxtone’s!

These events will be free for all, starting at 6 pm! These evenings will also host local brewery White Lion Brewing, our favorite local cider makers Artifact and Black Birch Vineyards wine for our over 21 guests. A few new and exciting additions this summer: Crème Bru.LA will be joining us for some sweet treats, we will have a charcuterie station and more treats are in store to make these summer nights magical

We encourage all to attend, bring a blanket, and some chairs, and enjoy the incredible offerings of our downtown’s stunning global cuisine for dine-in or takeaway to the concert.
