There are a lot of concerts that come to Philly each year. However, concerts at Lincoln Financial Field, Freedom Mortgage Pavilion, or other venues in the area can be very expensive. So I just wanted to share some cool spots that offer free outdoor concerts throughout the summer.
Pastorius Park in Chestnut Hill is an easy 20-minute drive from campus and offers a free concert series on Wednesday nights throughout the summer. Enjoy a nice summer night under the string-lit greenery at Pastorius Park. Bring a blanket, chairs, food, and drinks and enjoy the show. If you make it to one of these concerts on Wednesday, odds are you will be craving another musical experience under the stars ASAP!
And if that’s the case, head to the Abington Arts Center the next night because they are offering a free concert series on Thursday nights throughout the summer. Bring your own food and drinks and dance the night away. Alternatively, they have some awesome food and drink options inside the venue that might peak your interest. Either way from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursdays at the Abington Arts Center is the place to be; this is less than a five-minute drive from campus and requires no cost for admission.
If you don’t want to leave your dog alone after being alone all day, it is worth noting that all of these venues are dog friendly, but Woofstock at Seager Dog Park is dog encouraged. Seager Dog Park is a great place for you furry friends to play and mingle for a whole night without sacrificing social plans for yourself. Concerts every Tuesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. May through September.
There are a ton of venues in Philadelphia and Montgomery County that offer free concerts throughout the summer. Here are some others to check out: Fishtown Music in the Park, Green Lane Park, Norristown Free Concert Series, and Summer Concert Series at Fischer Park.
Spending time outside under the night sky, feeling the summer breeze on our skin and the grass under our feet, and letting the music resonate through our bodies is good for us. Make your way to one of these concerts this summer, they’re a great change of pace.
