Summer is just around the corner and one of the best things about San Luis Obispo County is that in the late spring into summer there are free concerts in almost every city. The summer concert series in the village of Arroyo Grand is one of the great concert series in the county. Their concerts happen every other Sunday at 1:00pm they are held at the Rotary Bandstand in Heritage Square Park in the heart of downtown. The first concert in the series will be on June 12th, and the last one will be on September 18th. The first concert is sure to get everyone all jazzed up for the rest of the concerts they will be holding this coming summer. Rabobank is the Series Sponsor that helps the Village Improvement Association put on these wonderful events. The Series is presented by the Arroyo Grande Village Improvement Association and the City of Arroyo Grande Recreation and Maintenance Services Department. The concerts bring the community together for terrific music & good fellowship as well as promoting local non-profit groups The Village Concert Series offers free shows to the general public to enjoy the weather, each others company, and the wonderful music. Two of the shows will be featured during Arroyo Grande's Centennial Celebration on July 9th and 10th. This year's concerts will feature an eclectic mix of musical groups while giving special recognition to local nonprofit organizations. As a tip of the hat to the Arroyo Grande Centennial each show this summer will feature a different decade of music and culture from the past 100 years! I love concerts in the park in the summer; you can pack a picnic dinner and bring the whole family for a guaranteed good time. I have such fond memories of going to local concerts with my family in the summer, and they are a great event to go to when just visiting because you can really get a feel of what the community is like and how the come together to have a good time in the summer. So the next time you plan your trip out to San Luis Obispo County be sure to check and see if there is a summer concert going on while you are here, especially the Village of Arroyo Grande Summer Concert Series!
