Free outdoor concerts are coming to the Woodbridge business district this summer and fall! On the fourth Saturday of June, July, September and October at 1 pm there will be live music on the lawn at Coachman Square, 21 Bradley Road.
The concert series is possible thanks to a grant the Town of Woodbridge received from United Illuminating, an Avangrid Company. Rain dates are Sunday for all concerts.
“These concerts are a clever partnership between the Town, Coachman Square and United Illuminating and should bring in additional traffic to discover our wonderful local businesses,” said First Selectman Beth Heller. “We thank United Illuminating for this wonderful grant opportunity and also thank Coachman Square for use of their facility.”
“Coachman Square is excited to host this concert series to bring free entertainment to support our residents and our business neighbors,” said Sarah Malaspina, Coachman Square Executive Director.
“The concerts will provide a great environment in the business district and should serve as another reason for residents and visitors to patronize all of our local shops, restaurants and businesses,” said Economic Development Chair Jeremy Rosner.
