Concerts will go on, rain or shine. Musical Mondays concerts are from 6:30-8 p.m. The Wonderful Wednesdays concerts are just one hour in length, from 6:30-7:30 p.m.

 

These concerts are FREE and open to the public. These enjoyable concerts are presented in cooperation with Milwaukee County Parks, with a generous donation from the Coles Family Foundation.

All concerts take place at the new Lake Park Summer Stage, just south of the playground and tennis courts.
