Information on Fireworks Day

Our Summer Concert Series starts with a bang as part of the Town of Kent Fireworks Day. At 7:30 PM Kati Mac and Southeast Station help celebrate the holiday weekend performing Americana music from folk songs to blues, roots, rock and Woodstock. The concert ends with the fireworks display over Lake Carmel starting shortly after 9:15 p.m.

Music at the Art Center starts at 5 PM with Whiskey Neat (blues, folk and punk), which hails from Carmel, followed by Open Book and then Alectro.

The Summer Concerts are pay-what-you-wish events and are held on the North Lawn of Arts on the Lake. You are welcome to bring blankets, lawn chairs, and picnic food.
