It’s Back! Blues on the Library Lawn Returns August 27

It has been three long years since we were able to celebrate summer with this much-loved event. But it is back! Mark your calendar for a night of music, dancing and socializing with your neighbors as Blues on the Library Lawn returns at 6:00pm on Saturday, August 27! We have a lot to celebrate as a community, including the reopening of your transformed Flint Public Library. If you have not had a chance to visit the Library yet, this would be a great opportunity. The Library will be open from 9:00am – 6:00pm on August 27, so you can stop in before the concert.

The performers onstage this year include:

  • Greg Ellis
  • Faye Bradford
  • Bleau McCray-Morel
  • The Bobby Murray Band featuring Lenny Watkins, with special guest Tosha Owens

You are welcome to sit and listen on the Terrace, although it will have limited visibility. There is also limited seating under the tent. Feel free to bring your lawn chair or blanket for relaxing under the stars. This event is free and open to the public, so bring your friends and family and come on out!
