The Drop-In is back with more music than ever.
Our free outdoor concert series returns on May 25th! Every Thursday through August 10th, we’ll provide the tunes and the view if you bring the energy. Even better – this year we’ve added more music, which means even more opportunities for a good time. Shake off your blankets and lawn chairs, double-check you have all the Drop-In info you need, and prepare to vibe on our new 3D printed stage all summer long. 👇!
Make sure you’re the first to know
Get on the list for the freshest Drop-In deets (like when RSVPs open) plus weekly show updates about DJ sets, food trucks, and other pre-show surprises.
