Happening tonight: Concerts in the Park to open in Home Place Park on June 16

MADISON – The city’s tradition of summertime evenings with free music will return with “Concerts in the Park” on June 16.

The concerts will have a new venue at the revamped Home Place Park at 100 Shorter St., located just south of downtown Madison and west of Madison City Schools Stadium. The City of Madison renovated Home Place Park with amphitheater seating and other considerations for outdoor performances.

A parallel parking bay with electrical hookups south of Shorter Street will accommodate food trucks. The project will be ADA-accessible. Individuals can walk or bike ride to the park because of its proximity to neighborhoods, downtown and new multi-family housing.

Admission is free for the concerts, which start at 6 p.m. on Thursdays.

The 2022 schedule includes Calypso Vision on June 16; Groove on July 21; and The Zooks on Aug. 18.

Audience members can bring their own lawn chairs. Vendors will sell food and drinks.

The City of Madison Parks and Recreation Department is coordinating the concerts.
