Princeton Public Library Presents Summer Concert Series at Princeton Shopping Center

Princeton Public Library has teamed up once again with the Princeton Shopping Center to bring a series of free concerts to the community this summer. Held in the courtyard of the shopping center, the Summer Nights series of concerts will take place on Thursday evenings in July and August, from 6-8 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or a blanket.


"Thursday nights at the Princeton Shopping Center are going to be filled with the sounds of summer and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Janie Hermann, manager of adult programs at the library. “Audiences will be delighted by the lineup of familiar favorites along with some wonderful new acts to discover. We hope everyone will mark their calendars and come out to gather with their families and neighbors and enjoy the Summer Nights series.”


The series kicks off July 7 when the Grace Little Band, an area favorite, presents a high energy performance of classic hits. Popular rock ‘n’ roll cover band Kindred Spirit will appear on July 14. July 21 features the American blues duo essie + nap, and the horn-based Diablo Sandwich Band performs familiar dance and party songs on July 28.


Concerts in August include John Gilbride & Friends performing a fusion of folk, rock and funk on Aug. 4 and Green Knuckle Matierial with a genre-bending melding of pop, rock, soul and more on Aug. 18.


On Aug. 11, the library’s Summer Reading Wrap-up Party will take place at the shopping center from 6-7:30 p.m. This annual event is a celebration for readers of all ages, and features music by Lolly Hopwood and her band as well as a variety of fun activities, including giveaways and crafts.


Those who wish to enjoy dinner during the concerts will find no shortage of dining options at the shopping center. Pizza, tacos and tapas, fresh salads and sandwiches and more are all available on site along with water ice and soft serve from Rita’s Italian Ice.
