Come summer, you will have yet another reason to visit Downtown Shelton: free live music! Celebrate Shelton and Liberty Bank are proud to announce the fifth annual Downtown Sounds Summer Concerts at Veterans Memorial Park in downtown Shelton on Fridays – July 19th, July 26th and August 2nd from 5:00pm – 9:00pm.
“We are thrilled to continue this free summer concert series and food truck festival in Downtown Shelton as an enjoyable place for all families to gather,” said Jimmy Tickey, co-creator of Celebrate Shelton. “When we started this summer concert series five years ago, we could only hope for the response we have seen from our community.”
“Each night offers a great musical lineup, food trucks, handmade artisans, and a beer garden sponsored by New Belgium Brewing” said Nicole Heriot-Mikula, creator of Celebrate Shelton.
“This year, we will kick off each week with a Kids Hour: Mad Science the Rocket Show, BringtheHoopla, and Hands On Drumming! Then, starting at 6:00pm each week, there will be live music from local to national bands,” noted Michael Skrtic, co-creator of Celebrate Shelton. The musical line-up includes: The Split Coils and Slam Allen Band on July 19th; Baby Dynamite and The Alpaca Gnomes on July 26th; Jen Durkin & the Business and The Big Takeover on August 2nd. Rain Date is August 9.
Food Trucks are: Pierogies on Wheels, Szabo’s Seafood Truck, Lucky Dog, Fryborg, M’estezo Grill and Tipsy Cones.
The concerts are free to attend, though there is a suggested donation of $5 to sustain Celebrate Shelton’s efforts in the community. As in the past, Celebrate Shelton’s community partner for Downtown Sounds is Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley.
