The Drop-In lineup has DROPPED

Our free outdoor concert series returns on May 23! Every Thursday through August 15 (except for July 4th, of course), we’ll provide the tunes and the view if you bring the energy. With 22 bands and plenty of opportunity to let loose, it’s time to shake off your blankets and lawn chairs, double-check you have all the Drop-In info you need, and prepare to vibe on our 3D-printed stage all summer long.
