ARROYO GRANDE, CALIFORNIA – The City of Arroyo Grande Recreation Services Department is excited to continue the Summer Concert Series, a treasured community tradition in the beautiful Village of Arroyo Grande. This summer, these free community concerts are scheduled to kick off on Tuesday, the 4th of July, continuing weekly on Sundays through September 17th, at Heritage Square Park.
On the 4th of July, the first concert will feature The Village Band from 11am-1pm with Unfinished Business taking the stage from 2-4pm. Festive activities and entertainment for the whole family will be offered during intermission. The South County Historical Society will sell their famous hot dogs and the Arroyo Grande Rotary Club will provide beer and wine sales. As is the tradition in Arroyo Grande, local non-profits provide a raffle at each of the events, and on the 4th of July, Arroyo Grande in Bloom will be raffling off amazing prizes in addition to selling a variety of plants.
In addition to free music, the Recreation Services team is excited to partner with the Central Coast Athletics Foundation to host the first 4th of July Firecracker Run for youth ages 5-12 starting at 10am in the Village. Registration for the race is available online and will be open on-site starting at 9:30am at Heritage Square Park. This fun and rewarding race will take adventure seekers on a race through the back alleys of the Village of Arroyo Grande, on a firecracker-inspired course. You do not want to miss out on the fun and celebration in this all-time summer event!
