Easton Main Street Initiative Announces Free Summer Concerts Series

Mar 18th, 2015Press Release from Easton Main Street Initiative

Easton Main Street is excited to announce the 2015 line-up for their FREE Summer Concert Series. Kicking off the series is the fifth installment of Live at Riverside, which began in 2011 with the completion of the renovated Riverside Park. Featuring bleacher seating and great views of the Delaware River, the amphitheatre also has lots of room to boogie. Throughout the evening concert goers can enjoy the Riverside Pub Tent featuring beer and wine provided by Porters’ Pub and light dinner fare provided by Colonial Pizza. Live at Riverside concerts are moving to the second Friday of the month, 7:30-9:30pm, May thru September. Riverside Amphitheatre is located in Riverside Park along Larry Holmes Drive. Free parking is available across the street in the Gov. Wolf lot.

Live in the Square is in its seventh consecutive year and makes for a great evening out – either enjoying dinner music while dining outside at the many restaurants located in Centre Square, or as evening entertainment while strolling through downtown. Live in the Square concerts are held 7:30-9:30pm, the last Friday of the month, May thru September. Concerts are held in Centre Square located in the heart of Downtown Easton.

For the third year, Easton Main Street will be hosting Tunes at Noon, a lunch-hour concert series in Centre Square. Residents, visitors and downtown employees are invited to bring their lunch outside to enjoy these great, local performers. Tunes at Noon is also held in Centre Square, 12Noon to 1pm, Fridays in May and June.

All concerts are free and open to the public.

Easton Main Street Initiative would like to thank our generous sponsors: Norris, McLaughlin, & Marcus, P.A. Attorneys at Law; Van Cleef Engineering Associates; VM Development Group, LLC; Boyle Construction Management; and Rivals Sports Bar & Restaurant.
