Summer Concerts in the Parks Series
Concerts in the Parks is Georgetown’s favorite summer Concerts series, free and open to the public in beautiful Volta and Rose Parks. These family-friendly events take place on Sunday evenings throughout the summer and feature great music, fun family activities and edible treats – even food trucks!
Concerts in the Parks committee chair Hannah Isles is heading plans for the new season. Mark your calendars for concert Sundays: May 22nd, June 19th (Father’s Day), and July 10th.
As is the tradition, the first concert of the season, presented by TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, will feature Georgetown’s own favorite singer songwriter Rebecca McCabe. Rebecca will no doubt have the crowd, including the bravest mini-stars, up on stage dancing and lip synching to one of the latest hits! The concert will take place Sunday, May 22nd in Volta Park from 5:30 to 7pm.
Grab your dad and don your dancing shoes for the fabulous father’s day concert, presented by Nancy Taylor Bubes and Washington Fine Properties, on Sunday, June 19th in Volta Park from 5:30 to 7pm. The Father’s day concert will feature the Weathervanes. In addition to great music, there will be special treats to celebrate the dads.
Beat the summer heat at the final concert of the season that will be held on Sunday, July 10th in Rose Park from 5:30 to 7pm. Concertgoers will tap toes and sway to the Roots Rock/Americana band, The Walkaways. And as always our sponsors will have special treats and activities for cooling off.
Concerts Kickoff Party at Vinyl Lounge
The season kicked off on Thursday, April 14th with a great crowd and live music by Steve Siekkonen at Vinyl Lounge, hosted by Concerts sponsor Gypsy Sally’s. The host committee and friends – a crowd of 100 – grooved to the sounds of favorite old tunes covered by local singer songwriter Steve Siekkinen while quaffing nostalgic dive bar drinks and snacks and rocking glow bracelets and temporary tattoos. Many thanks to the hard work of the Kickoff Party committee chaired by Amy Looney, Erin Mullan and Dabney Jewell.
