Head to the Park for Lunch and a Show


The community is invited to pack a lunch — or grab one to go — and enjoy the “sounds of Holland” at a free concert series this summer.

Downtown Holland is hosting a new weekly event, Concerts in the Park, which will run noon-1 p.m. every Wednesday from June 12 to Aug. 28 in GDK Park on Eighth Street between Central and River avenues.

The event is free and family-friendly.

“Bring a blanket, pack a lunch — or grab one to go from a downtown Holland restaurant — sit back and relax as the sounds of jazz, folk, blues, Tejano music and more fill Eighth Street,” organizers said.

Singer-songwriter Matt Gabriel, based in Grand Rapids, kicks off the series on June 12. He performs “a mix of folk and blues that you would expect from an artist who grew up between Chicago and Detroit,” according to Downtown Holland.

More information on Concerts in the Park is available by calling (616) 796-1210 or visiting downtownholland.com.
