About the Sunset Concert Series:
Every Wednesday in July and August beginning at 6:30 PM Rain or Shine in the Harborfront Park, by the Village Center, 101A East Broadway, Port Jefferson, just east of Danford's and the Ferry. The concerts will take place outside if the weather is nice, if not it will take place inside the Port Jeff Village Center.
In 2009, the Arts Council started presenting free concerts in Harborfront Park, featuring talented musicians who perform much of their own music. The mix is eclectic, ranging from blues to country, bluegrass to folk, rockabilly to jazz, young rock bands to classical fusion, world music and much more.
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a picnic supper and their own blankets or lawn chairs. This is a terrific way to connect with neighbors and make new friends, all while enjoying delightful music and spectacular sunsets over Port Jefferson Harbor. There are some terrific food establishments in the area – pick up something to go, and come on down to the Park!
The concerts are FREE to the public. We move into the Village Center if the weather doesn’t cooperate (no dogs inside the Village Center, please).
Harborfront Park is handicapped-accessible and leashed-dog-friendly.
