Front Porch Concert Series

July 7 @ 7:00 pm - September 15 @ 7:00 pm

LakewoodAlive Front Porch Concert SeriesVisit  Downtown Lakewood on a Friday evening this summer and you can’t help but notice live music echoing through the city streets, beckoning families and concert-goers alike to the heart of the city.

That’s because LakewoodAlive’s Front Porch Concert Series – sponsored by Bentley Wealth Management of Raymond James – takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. each Friday evening from July 7 through Sept. 15.  Like a crowd-pleasing encore performance, this summer series is sure to delight its audience, as it features a wide array of free, live music on the front porch of Lakewood Public Library (15425 Detroit Avenue) for 11 consecutive Fridays.

The 2017 edition of this summer series offers something for every musical taste.  From folk to reggae to rock and roll, each weekly concert remains family-friendly while delving into diverse musical genres.  Attendees are encouraged to bring family, friends, snacks, blankets and chairs.  In the event of inclement weather, the affected concert will be moved into the library.
