The Recreation Department has posted its lineup of summer concerts during the month of July, and a “Taste of Woodbridge” event will again be part of it. The food event, which last year drew an estimated 2,000 foodies to the gazebo green, will take place Tuesday, July 7, in conjunction with a jazz performance by Airborne Jazz. Area restaurants and eateries will supply taste test-sized bites of their offerings under a tent set up along the edge of the field. As for the participating chefs, the list was still open when we contacted the Recreation Department. Chefs interested to participate can contact Jim Franco at (203) 389-3446.
The free concerts are taking place on Tuesday nights in July, from 6 to 8 p.m. on the green across from the Town Hall. Typically, some food truck vendors will be parked near the field, even on non-food nights. People are encouraged to bring a picnic and enjoy the summer events.
In case of rain on July 7, The Taste of Woodbridge event and Airborne Jazz concert will be moved to Wednesday, July 8. If it still rains on July 8, the Taste of Woodbridge will be canceled, and the concert will be moved to the Center Gym.
