Castle Hill Picnic Concert: Los Sugar Kings

Picnic Concert at Castle Hill

About Castle Hill Picnic Concert: Los Sugar Kings

Summer is here and it’s time for Castle Hill Picnic Concerts! Each Thursday, June 27 – August 29 (no concert July 4), will feature a different family-friendly band performing on Castle Hill’s Grand Allee overlooking Crane Beach. In addition, The Fools will perform a special concert on Sunday, July 21 (rain date July 28). The concert will be filmed for a documentary about this iconic rock band recently inducted into the New England Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Bring a picnic blanket or lawn chair and set up on the lawn. While here, explore the gardens, walk the 1/2-mile-long Grand Allee, try a landscape-themed eye spy, picnic, and dance on the grass.

Bring a picnic supper or purchase supper onsite from vendors Beefie Boys or Plat Du Jour and dessert from Down River Ice Cream or Q’s Nuts, or on Aug 1, 8, 15, & 22, The Whoopie Pie Wagon. Mill River Winery, True North Ales, and 1634 Meadery will sell beverages each week. Outside alcoholic beverages are not permitted and parcels will be searched upon entry.
