These events are not business as usual. Gathering people during a pandemic is tricky and requires thoughtful measures. This COVID-safe music series is in substitution for Denmark Arts Centers fall fundraiser. These concerts are rain or shine events, as their music will be piped into your vehicle, in case of inclement weather.
A description of what the experience will be like at the concert accompanies each band listing on the website. The goal for each of these events is to get art into the community, employ musicians, and provide a bit of relief for our weary minds. Additional thank you to our season sponsor Atlantic Hardwoods of Portland, Maine.
Tickets are $50 per vehicle (maximum five persons). To purchase tickets or find more information, go to denmarkarts.org/event.
