Summer Concerts on the Centre Common

January 25, 2021 Update - Please stay tuned as we iron out plans to hold Concerts on the Centre Common safely this coming summer (2021). Thank you for your patience!! Stay Safe and Be Well!

June 2020 - The Framingham Parks & Recreation Department to cancel 2020 Summer concert series due to COVID-19: The Department regretfully announces the cancellation of its' Summer concert series due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After consulting with the Health Department, the Parks & Recreation Department recognizes it is unable to offer concerts safely at this time. Even though there is a fondness for this longstanding tradition, the Department holds the safety of the Framingham community as its number one priority. Although the Governor has moved the State into Phase 3, restrictions to large gatherings remain in effect. The Department will continue to monitor public health guidance and explore options for small-scale, limited community events during the Fall. 

We would like to thank sponsors ADESA, Bernardi Auto, Metro West Credit Union, Framingham Cultural Council, and Mutual One for standing strong with them during these challenging times. 

Stay safe!!
