Concerts in the Park are happening again in person, Monday nights this summer. Concerts in the Park is a free event and a Huntsville tradition, hosted by Arts Huntsville and Huntsville Parks & Recreation, bringing live, local music to the park every Monday night for 10 weeks.
It’s an extension of the weekend, a banisher of Sunday scaries, and just a fun way to spend a Monday night in the summer.
The Concerts will take place in downtown Huntsville on the Huntsville Museum of Art outdoor stage in Big Spring International Park from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. The series is FREE to the public; concertgoers should bring their own seating and leashed pets are welcome.
