Tune Up the Parks Concert Series returns to in-person performances starting on Monday, July 5th in Essex.

After a switch to online concerts, the Town’s Arts, Culture & Tourism Committee is ready to host in-person performances for the series, which is heading into its seventh year.

The series kicks off shortly after 7:00pm at Colchester Park (100 Jackson Street) on Monday with a performance from Bad Romance, a hard-rockin’ cover band playing hits from the likes of Evanescence, AC/DC, and Lady Gaga. Two days later, up-and-coming local artist Emerson Emelia will perform at Heritage Gardens Park (87 Station Street, Essex).

“As a committee we are excited to bring this celebration of community artists back to our local parks,” said Tony Paniccia, Chair of the Arts, Culture & Tourism Committee. “While the events may not be exactly as they were in previous years, this is an opportunity to safely come together to enjoy the outdoors and these talented musicians.”

Upcoming Tune Up the Parks performances are scheduled for Mondays in Colchester and Wednesdays in Essex Centre from July 5th until September 1st. All performances start shortly after 7:00pm.

All attendees are asked to abide by current public health restrictions, such as crowd size limits and physical distancing.
