Summer Concert Series

Summer Concert Series in the Parks


The concert series in the parks has become an Akron tradition. Bring your chair, have a picnic dinner, catch up with your neighbors and enjoy the weekly free concerts. All of the bands are family friendly and concessions are offered at each site.

We try to get in as many concerts as possible, but sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate. For concert updates during the season you can call 330-375-2311 or visit our facebook page - City of Akron Recreation and Parks
