MANCHESTER — The Concerts on the Green lineup has been announced with six concerts slated for Wednesdays in July and August on the schedule.

This year’s concerts are supported by Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty this year.

The 2021 music series will begin at 6 p.m. and run until about 8 p.m. weekly on Wednesdays beginning July 7 and running through Aug. 11.

The new sponsor said the concerts were missed in 2020.

“We all really missed the concert series last year,” said Andy Reed, associate broker of Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty. “My family, and especially my girls, love getting together at the Town Green to hang out with other families and enjoy some great local takeout while listening to live music.”

The Concerts on the Green gets underway July 7 with Moose Crossing.

Other weeks include Muddy Hollow on July 14, Deena Chappel Trio on July 21, Mowgli’s Satydagg on July 28, Rick Reddington and the Luv on August 4 and the concert series ends Aug. 11 with Sammy Blachette.

“The Town is really excited to host the concert series on the Factory Point Town Green,” said Town Manager John O’Keefe. “We’re very grateful to Sotheby’s Four Seasons for their sponsorship of this important community event. The concerts attract a large number of local residents and visitors to downtown Manchester.”

Thanks to the sponsorship, the concerts are free and open to the public.

The Factory Point Town Green is located in downtown Manchester on Depot Street just west of the roundabout with Main Street.

Attendees are reminded to bring a lawn chair or blanket. There is no smoking on the Town Green, and dogs must be leashed at all times. Other popular summer events are planned this year including the Fourth of July fireworks at the Dana L. Thompson Memorial Park and two StreetFests on the evenings of July 30 and August 27 on Main Street.

Questions about the events can be directed to the Manchester Parks and Recreation Department at 802-362-1439 or parks@manchester-vt.gov. Weather-related cancellations will be posted on the Town of Manchester Facebook page.
