The Anson B. Nixon Park is proud to host its free eight (8) week summer concert series in the park. In conjunction with the the Kennett Flash the summer concert series brings entertainment from all different musical genres, from country, jazz, rock, the blues and more.
The first concert of the 2019 season will start on Wednesday, June 19th from 7-9pm and will continue for the next consecutive Wednesdays with the last show presented on August 7th. The concerts are free and open to the public. Bring a blanket or a chair, sit back and enjoy the music in the beautiful out door setting of the Park. Each week a local restaurant is featured and will offer its signature dish for purchase.
Concerts are rain or shine events, and are only canceled in the event of severe weather. Shows start promptly at 7pm and run until 9pm with a brief intermission. Dinner is available for purchase from area restaurants at all performances, with desserts offered by La Michoacana Ice Cream and Sweet Magnolia Bakery.
