City of Groton 2020 Summer Concerts in the Park
August 7, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Friday, repeating until August 28, 2020
Summer concerts are back in the City of Groton and each Friday a new band will be featured starting at 6:30 pm. Food Trucks will also be available for food options.
All concerts are held in Washington Park in Groton, Connecticut and begin at 6:30 p.m. Concerts are free to the public. For the first time food trucks will be onsite beginning at least 30 minutes prior to the performance. Q105 will return to our shows as well.
The viewing area in Washington Park will be marked off with 18 foot-sized boxes in which attendees can sit to enjoy the show. Each box will be separated from each other by empty spaces of equal size. (Below is a sample diagram of a general look of set up).
Face masks must be worn whenever you are not in your box – meaning walking to and from your vehicle, the restrooms or any other destination.
Stay with your party. Please arrive with your group and do not intermingle with other groups. This is vital in our efforts to reduce the spread of the virus.

The Lebowskis are a brand new 90s cover band featuring many performers from the 80s cover band The Future Heavies. So are they really brand new? Yes sort of, but not really. But what they definitely are is a whole lot of fun – playing songs by No Doubt, Beastie Boys, Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, R.E.M. and much more.
The City of Groton takes the COVID-19 Pandemic very seriously and will be making accommodations to ensure the safety of all who choose to come to the shows. Due to the outdoor nature of the shows and the vastness of Washington Park attendees should be able to maintain a healthy distance from others, but we will also be making the following precautions:
