The free outdoor concert series will feature four concerts on Tuesdays during the month of July at park locations throughout Evanston.

Maintain a six-foot distance from those outside of your household at all times. Staff will be on hand to ensure that physical distancing is maintained.

Bring a face covering if you are over two years of age. Attendees may be asked by staff to wear a face covering if they are unable to maintain a six-foot distance from others. Individuals must wear a face covering in public places when maintaining a six-foot distance from those outside of their household is not possible.

Bring your own blankets and chairs, and take them with you when you leave.

The City will be closely monitoring the success of physical distancing and other public health practices at the July 7 concert to determine if future concerts are possible, and if additional safety restrictions are needed. Capacity will be limited at concerts based on the size of the park.
