Friends of the Eastern Promenade takes great pleasure in hosting and coordinating this annual family-oriented series of concerts in partnership with the City of Portland. Thanks to generous partnership with local businesses, our Summer Community Concert Series at the Fort Allen Bandstand takes place Thursday nights throughout July and August from 6:30-7:30 pm. 

CONCERTS ARE FREE. Donations are welcome.      

People of all ages attend with lawn chairs, blankets, hoola-hoops and smiles. Food trucks provide an assortment of delicious local cuisine. A variety of music genres from Maine and beyond provide sounds for everyone to enjoy while watching the moonrise over the bay. 

Average attendance is 600-800 cheerful listeners from the surrounding community and beyond.

We look forward to another fabulous season of a variety of  live music and hope you’ll support our efforts to keep the music alive.
