Concerts in the Park

The Arts Council and the City of Huntsville Department of Parks & Recreation present Concerts in the Park, a 10-week FREE concert series in Big Spring Park.

Featuring 19 bands, the series celebrates the very best in Huntsville music. There's something for everyone, too, as genres span the decades and offer a glimpse into the variety of the local performing arts scene. And it's family-friendly!

The series is free to the public. Held on the rear patio of the Huntsville Museum of Art, facing the lagoon in Big Spring Park in downtown Huntsville, the atmosphere just can't be beat. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and dancing shoes. Leashed pets are also welcome.

Picnics are encouraged at the Concerts in the Park but for the first time The Arts Council and the City of Huntsville will host local food trucks. Each week, the vendors will be onsite with a variety of items available for purchase. The menus include burritos, quesadillas and other Mexican flavors from Crave Heat, seafood from Rollin’ Lobstah, a variety of shaved ice choices from Iceworks, homegrown iced teas from Piper and Leaf, all beef franks with homemade toppings from Rocket Dogs and desserts from Big Foot’s Little Donuts.

The 2014 Concert series will begin on Monday, June 2 and run through August 4. Each Concert begins at 6:30 p.m.

Here's the lineup! Don't miss any of these great local acts:
