Music on the Green, Redmond’s free concert series, gets back to Sam Johnson Park
Redmond’s well known Music on the Green concerts have gotten back to Sam Johnson Park.
Khrisma Carter, events director for the Redmond Chamber of Commerce said she’s eager to take the free summer concerts back to Redmond this year.
The 24th annual concert series, which has three additional shows this summer, was canceled last year and moved to the Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center for social removing prerequisites.
“They were gracious enough to allow us to go there, because they had different guidelines, being a county establishment,” Carter said.
The leftover shows will presently get back to Sam Johnson Park- – Carter said it’ll permit more individuals to partake in the music.
“If they forget that it’s happening and they’re out and about, they definitely feel the vibe and the energy from the community radiating from this park. And it just brings them down (from the canyon),” Carter said.
The Redmond Chamber is as yet looking for sellers and food trucks to be important for the show series.
“Typically, when we have vendors, we have the vendors set up in this area, like with the bounce houses, and paparazzi and Avon. Sometimes we have the parks and rec people down here with fun activities for the kids, or Deschutes Library. So it just really depends on who signs up for any particular concert series,” Carter said.
The summer concerts start around 5 p.m. upon the arrival of the shows. Social distancing rules are set up, however Carter said the park is large enough for individuals to partake in the shows at a protected separation from each other.
“So you definitely want to bring some low-rise chairs and blankets to hang out with the family. Bring your dogs and your pups. Just bring your whole family down. Its’ a great time,” Carter said.
