Concord’s summer concert series comes to a close Thursday

CONCORD, CA (Sept. 29, 2021) —This summer’s Music and Market concert series in Todos Santos Plaza ends with one last show on Sept. 30.

The last band featured for this year, reggae band, Native Elements, takes the stage on Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

Music fans have enjoyed the variety of music, as well as the street food, and farmers market produce of Music and Market all summer long. Families and friends put down their lawn chairs and picnic blankets to listen to the free concerts through the hottest days and now into the cooling fall weather.

We’ve seen the Sun Kings, Roy Rogers with Carlos Reyes, Nancy Lake and the Ripple Effect, and many more since the series started in July. And each concert is preceded by the Concord Farmers Market, which still has some great fall fruits and vegetables. You will find several delicious varieties of apples as many shapes and colors of squash.

The City of Concord thanks the community sponsors who made the concert series possible. This includes Ashby Lumber, Mt. Diablo Resource Recovery, Pacific Service Credit Union, Marathon Petroleum Corporation, Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association, Concord POA, and Visit Concord.

Make your way to Todos Santos Plaza at the corner of Willow Pass Road and Grant Street on Thursday. Parking is free. The farmers’ market opens at 4 p.m., and concerts begin at 6:30 p.m.
