The summer months in Western MA are an excellent time to check out live music the whole family can enjoy together.  There are several of free lawn concerts that happen in the late afternoon and early evening during these warmer months where families can have evening picnic dinner together on the green while taking in live music.  Bring your own chairs, blankets, beverages and bubbles too, for a fun time during the setting sun.

Every Sunday, in the late afternoon, head to Stanley Park in Westfield where families can BYO picnic dinner and spread out while listing to family-friendly performers playing as part of the park’s free summer concert series.

On Tuesdays, The Clark in Williamstown also has dinners available during their free outdoor live concerts; and on Wednesdays families can BYO picnic to enjoy during the lawn concert series at Conant Park in Southampton.

Then on Thursdays there are several lawn concert series worth checking out this summer: Angel Park celebrates their 4th year in Williamsburg, located across the street from the Burgy Thursday Farmers’ Market, a great place to grab dinner for a picnic on the lawn; and Energy Park in Greenfield has new acts each week and a nearby playground for kids while parents take in the show; live music happens on the porch of the Florence Civic Center, across the street from Cup & Top Cafe, a kid-friendly place to pick up a bagged dinner to enjoy with the kids on the lawn; in Russell the VFW hosts a family-friendly outdoor concert series too, but only for the month of July; and there’s a summer concert series at the gazebo in Huntington with a bake sale to purchase desserts.
