Concertgoers won’t have to go far to find great entertainment this summer. While neighboring venues in Carmel and Indianapolis offer big-name gigs, Zionsville offers small-town entertainment with lots of local acts.
Lincoln Park Concert Series
According to Betsy Huffman, a member of the Lincoln Park Concert Series Planning Committee, the Lincoln Park Concert Series has been going on for more than a quarter of a century.
These free concerts will take place at 7 p.m. every Wednesday night during the summer, until July 31.
This year’s first concert will be at 7 p.m. June 4 when local musician Chad Mills performs for the entire family in a show he calls “School’s Out For Summer.”
“These are always a lot of fun,” Huffman said.
Local restaurants will also be in attendance to sell snacks and entrees to enjoy during the shows. Greek’s Pizzeria, Inga’s Popcorn, Nicey Treat, Patrick’s and My Sugar Pie have committed to provide a unique food items to the Park for guests to purchase. Guests also are encouraged to bring their own picnic to enjoy.
Lincoln Park is at the corner of First and Oak Streets. For more information on the concerts, visit the Lincoln Park Concert Series page on Facebook.
Lions Park Concert Series
The Zionsville Lions Club will continue to host its Sunday Concert Series this summer during the month of July. Every Sunday throughout the month, there will be a concert inside the Lions Park gazebo. All concerts will begin at 7 p.m.
Food and drinks will be available for a donation to the Zionsville Lions Park. In the event of rain, concerts will be inside the Zionsville Lions Clubhouse.
