Outdoor Summer Concert Series in Downtown Easton
Each summer, the Avalon Foundation seeks out regional performers and military bands to cover a wide range of tastes in good music. These concerts are held on downtown streets and parks. Streets are closed to traffic so that visitors can fill streets and sidewalks with lawn or camp chairs to enjoy the performances. The family-friendly concerts are free and open to the public. Children are welcome and dancing is encouraged.
