Hillside Gardens Wednesday Night Concert Series
Jun 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

We’ve been attending the Hillside Garden Concerts for years.  Bring a chair, sometimes and umbrella and bug repellent and listen to the music.  There is such an incredible mixture of local musicians.

“There will always be at least two different types of live music in the garden and if you listen carefully you can hear the ancient sounds of the didgeridoo being played in the upper gardens by John as well as the sounds of iron work in the lower gardens with Charles Walters offering blacksmithing demonstrations.” as per the Hillside website.

No outside food or pets.
