Bring the lawn chairs, grab a blanket and join the Redmond Chamber of Commerce & CVB for free live music as it hosts the 22nd year of Music on the Green, presented by Bank of the Cascades and Eberhard’s Dairy Products.
One of Central Oregon’s longest-running free community concert series,
Music on the Green kicked off the 2017 season at Sam Johnson Park on Wednesday, June 28 with music by Todd Haaby & Solo Via, who are back by popular demand. Their Nuevo Flamenco stylings are sure to please! Performances are scheduled from 6pm-7:30pm each evening.
Music on the Green will then continue every other Wednesday throughout the summer with five additional performances. The series will feature a diverse mix of music from country, big band, “Palm Tree Rock ’n Roll” and rock/dance.
“Each year, we strive to book a range of local musical acts that offer families and music lovers a good mix of genres,” said Redmond Chamber of Commerce Event Coordinator Karen Sande. “We succeeded in doing that again this year. I’m thrilled to offer our community a lineup of top-notch music from established local bands.”
Other musical performers at this year’s Music on the Green include Countryfied (July 12), The Notables Swing Band (July 26), Mango Stew (August 9) and Precious Byrd (August 23). Per annual tradition, a performance by Redmond’s Hokulea Dancers, a troop featuring traditional Hawaiian Island dance and drumming, will round out the 2017 season on Wednesday, September 6.
Along with free musical entertainment, Music on the Green will feature a variety of food, art and craft vendors in booths throughout Sam Johnson Park. Kids will love the bounce houses on site as well as games and activities provided by the Redmond Area Park and Recreation District (RAPRD).
Music on the Green is made possible thanks to a number of community sponsors, starting with presenting sponsors Bank of the Cascades and Eberhard’s Dairy Products.
