Several local venues offer summer concert series beginning this month, featuring local musical talent in a casual environment to enjoy with friends and family.

Wednesdays on the Waterfront

The Broomfield Cultural Affairs Department’s Wednesdays on the Waterfront concert series starts June 12. All ages are welcome to bring a picnic dinner and blanket to sit on, and enjoy a variety of musical talents at Community Park. Food trucks will be on hand on concert nights to provide treats and sweets before and during the concerts.

Cheryl German, Cultural Affairs Operations coordinator for the Broomfield City and County said the cultural affairs team looks for a diverse group of performers that will appeal to a wide variety of Broomfield tastes with a goal of providing a concert series that is entertaining and accessible to everyone. 

Up first in the series is Born to Run, a Springsteen Tribute Band that remains true to the Boss’ energy, spirit and music. Later, on June 19, 300 Days, a three-year-old bluegrass band dazzles with fiery original tunes complete with fiddle, mandolin, and guitar will take the stage. In July, don’t miss rising Colorado country star Richie Law on July 10, or seven-piece-band Deja Blu on July 24 with its mix of contemporary hits, Motown, R&B, classic rock, and country songs.

Other acts throughout the summer include guitarist and contemporary blues artists Bobby Messano, 80s band Raising Cain, Latin guitarist David Correa and the quirky stylings of Zoltan and the Fortune Tellers. 

"The summer concerts provide an ideal gathering place for the community to listen, dance, and enjoy the Colorado evening with friends, family, and neighbors,” said Kathryn Lynip, deputy director of Library and Cultural Affairs. “These concerts have been going on for a number of years and as the Broomfield Town Square grows up around the pond and amphitheater, we envision many such opportunities for the community to gather and engage with local artists and musicians."
