MARLBOROUGH – Marlborough’s free Summer Concert series will return this year, with performances in multiple locations throughout the summer.

Recently announced, the lineup includes a kickoff show on June 9 at Memorial Beach. The band Late Bus will bring rock music to the shore of the Fort Meadow Reservoir for that show.

“I don’t recall having a concert at Memorial Beach and thought it would be something different to offer folks,” Vigeant said of the Memorial Beach performance in a press release this week. 

Lawn chairs and blankets are recommended for those attending at Memorial Beach.

Concerts will then continue on Thursdays through mid-August at Union Common in the downtown area.

This year’s events will feature local breweries Tackle Box, Flying Dreams and Lost Shoe on a rotating schedule. 

The concert area, likewise, is being augmented with new tables, benches and string lighting.

Union Common performances are scheduled as follows:
