GOLDEN TRIANGLE TO HOST 14TH ANNUAL SUMMER CONCERT SERIES
Thursday Evenings, 5:30pm, Farragut Square Park, With ArtJamz
(Washington, DC) The popular Golden Triangle Summer Concert Series will kick off its 14th season on May 17th from 5:30pm to 7:30 pm. The free performances are held every Thursday in Farragut Square Park through June 21. This season’s series will include six concerts from a variety of musical genres beginning with Lethal Peanut, a hard rock blues band.
This year, concertgoers can “unleash their inner artist” and participate in ArtJamz on site during the concerts. ArtJamz is a local organization providing easels, canvases, paints, brushes and inspiration for participants to create art works while they enjoy the music. A fee and online registration is required to participate in ArtJamz. Learn more and register here artjamzdc.com.
“These concerts are a treat for those who work in Golden Triangle, visitors from across the city and the many tourists we host in the busy summer season,” said BID Executive Director Leona Agouridis. “It’s the perfect time of year to gather in the park with friends or coworkers and enjoy a different band every week for six weeks this summer. This year’s addition of ArtJamz provides even more creative energy and an additional element of entertainment to this popular event.”
Attendees are welcomed to bring chairs and blankets and are encouraged to pick up dinner at a Golden Triangle restaurant to enjoy in the park. A full list of Golden Triangle’s 200+ restaurants can be found at goldentriangledc.com.
