Concerts On The Green began in 1978 as a family friendly, community outreach project at First Presbyterian Church’s using FPC’s urban downtown campus. Families and singles enjoy first-rate blues-rock bands in a friendly and secure environment. Working parents can see their grade school children play enthusiastically on the campus with new peers. All adults renew old acquaintances or make new ones in a relaxed and congenial atmosphere.
Our outreach program provides seven free concerts on Thursday evenings in June, July, and August centered on professional blues-rock bands based in Fairfield County. Before a band performs, guest artists from the North America and Europe play popular tunes on FPC’s Carillon.
We encourage picnic suppers in the bowl of FPC’s Green before a concert begins. Some attendees set elaborate tables with candelabra. Most just lounge on the lawn with an overflowing picnic basket.
