The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the weather is perfect for live music and a beer outside. You know what that means? The Neighborhood Concert Series is back!
What is the Neighborhood Concert Series?
This will be the second year of the Neighborhood Concert Series (NCS), where we throw free pop-up concerts in parks around Boise! We partnered with our pals at the Morrison Center to create the NCS to help support live music after COVID shutdowns. Our goal is to make live music more accessible by providing free concerts in rotating neighborhoods around Boise so people all across town have the chance to hear live music without worrying about cost or transportation.
What can I expect at these events?
What better way to spend a summer evening than kicking back in your neighborhood park, listening to some tunes, and enjoying a cold beverage? Each concert will feature at least two musicians or bands, food trucks, vendors, and beverages from us! These events are family-friendly so bring the whole gang down to enjoy the festivities.
Please bring your own cups to these events!
We will have draft beer but are not providing plastic cups.
Sounds great! Where will the concerts be this summer?
