More Music on the Common!

By Bella Caggiano
Residents may be thinking the summer is half over, however, there is still some great music to entertain throughout the month of August!
The Town of Norwood offers an array of musical entertainment and talented musicians that all ages can enjoy…and every concert is FREE!
The Summerfest Concerts are held every Wednesday evening through August 24. These groups often provide sounds from numerous eras and have the audience on their feet dancing, or at least tapping their feet and bobbing their heads to familiar music.
Summerfest is held on the Norwood Town Gazebo, 7-9 p.m.

Summerfest Concerts 

August 3rd - Acoustic Fire
August 10th - Back Pages
August 17th - Squeezebox 
August 24th - David Tessiers All Star Band

Rain dates, if needed, will be August 31st and September 7th.

Summerfest is presented by The Norwood Arts Council, a non-profit organization of citizens dedicated to promoting the arts. It is through the efforts of these members, and the contributions from the Town of Norwood, local businesses, and private citizens, that Summerfest is possible. Thank you Norwood Arts Council and all those who donate so the community can enjoy a fun, entertainment evening together!
