On June 28, the Maneuver Center of Excellence Band will perform in Big Spring Park to help celebrate Armed Forces Celebration Week. But that’s just one of many artists who will take part in Arts Huntsville and the City of Huntsville Department of Parks and Recreation’s 2021 Concerts in the Park.
There will also be fireworks on June 28 following the MCoE Band.
“Concerts in the Park is a summer tradition in Huntsville that has been missed over the last year,” Bernita Reese, director of City of Huntsville Parks and Recreation Department, said in a release. “We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Big Spring Park to enjoy this great concert series showcasing local music and our park.”
The series kicked off Monday with The Kemistry Project and JUICE.
This year’s upcoming lineup includes: June 14, Victoria Jones and Jordan Moore and JED Eye; June 21, Luke and Jay and Kat Elizabeth; June 28, MCoE Band; July 5, A.M. Brown and Darien Omar; July 12, Chelsea, Who? and Remy Neal; July 19, Seeking Babylon and Groove; July 26, Kristoffer Leshaun and Rocket City Latin Band; Aug. 2, Jimmy Henderson Trio and .45 Surprise; and Aug. 9 will be a weather makeup date, bands to be announced.
The free concerts start at 6:30 p.m. and end around 8:30 in Big Spring International Park on the Huntsville Museum of Art’s outdoor stage.
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring their own seating, and organizers said leashed pets are welcome.
Various food trucks and vendors will also be on hand along Williams Avenue and Church Street.
“The arts and entertainment sector has been severely challenged over the past year, and the return of Concerts in the Park and other great arts programming is critical to the continued success of our local arts and entertainment scene,” Allison Dillon-Jauken, executive director of Arts Huntsville, said in a release. “We encourage area residents and visitors to support the 2021 Concert series and all of the summer arts events across the area.”
