Concerts in the Park Series Kicks off June 16 in St. Michaels

The St. Michaels Community Center’s free, waterfront Summer Concert Series is returning on Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:30pm to Muskrat Park in St. Michaels beginning June 16 and continuing through Sept. 1.
The concert series starts with the sounds and melodies of local favorite JCT33 playing their ‘little bit country, little bit rock ‘n roll.’ All 12 performances are listed on the St. Michaels Community Center’s website.
Muskrat Park features an expansive lawn overlooking St. Michaels Harbor and the Miles River and includes a covered gazebo for performances, with plenty of locally-owned restaurants and parking nearby.
Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or their own seating, along with friends, family, neighbors, your leashed dog, or just yourself to enjoy the concerts. Picnics are encouraged, with alcohol prohibited.
The free concert series is made possible through the generous sponsorship of local businesses acknowledged at each concert. Early, gold sponsors include Ava’s Pizzeria & Wine Bar, Bridges Land Management, The Crab Claw Restaurant, Hammy’s Burgers & Shakes, Lyon Rum // Windon Distilling, The Orthopedic Center at Easton, Rebecca Thomas Events, Theo’s Steaks, Sides & Spirits, Tilghman Island Inn, Total Home Performance, Town & Country Wine, Liquor, Etc, and The Wildset Hotel.
Treats including popcorn, water, and snow cones will be available for cash sale at the concerts, with proceeds benefiting the people served by SMCC.
The nonprofit continues to provide groceries and meals to those in need during select hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays along with youth, senior, and adult programs throughout the year.
Donations to SMCC and proceeds from its Treasure Cove Thrift Shop, located on Railroad Ave. in St. Michaels, help the nonprofit provide year-round programs, services, and community events for people in St. Michaels and from throughout Maryland’s Bay Hundred area.
