Music on the Green
Music on the Green is Central Oregon's longest-running free summer music concert series. Started by the Redmond Chamber of Commerce & CVB, the first events were attended by dozens of people. Today, however, well over 1,000 concert-goers attend on a bi-weekly basis Wednesdays during the summer — community wide events that feature free music, food, arts and craft vendors and much more!
Music on the Green's 2015 summer season will begin on Wednesday, June 24, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and run every other Wednesday through Wed., Sept. 2, when the Hokulea Dancers will close out the season with their tradition showing of Hawaiian dancing and drumming. Pack your lawn chairs and every member of your family, and we'll see you at Music on the Green!
