Live music is always a fun way to spend the evening in the summer and opportunities around Hendricks County Indiana parks abound. Locations often offer food trucks, beer and wine gardens, even a swimming pool in some instances.

To add to the fun, these events are free and outdoors. So grab your lawn chair or a blanket and make plans to spend summer with the entire family, on a date night or hanging out with neighbors and friends at these locations.

Evenings in Danville

This popular summer concert series is presented by the Danville Chamber of Commerce, Danville Parks and Recreation and Downtown Danville Partnership. Some concerts are held at the historic Hendricks County Courthouse Square and others will be at the Ellis Park Amphitheater in Danville.

Summer Soundtracks

The Brownsburg Parks and Recreation invites the community out to Arbuckle Acres Park for live music. They often partner with community businesses for more entertainment options such as a beer and wine garden or outdoor games as well.

Hummel Park Concert Series

Hummel Parks Performing Arts Center in Plainfield has been the location for Hendricks Symphony and The Biz theatre performances in the past but perhaps most anticipated is the annual live music concert series.

Food vendors will be on hand or pack a picnic and enjoy the evening.

Murphy Aquatic Summer Concert Series

Yep, take a dip in the wave pool, enjoy the waterslides and listen to a live concert at the same time.

This summer, Washington Township’s Murphy Aquatic Park will offer a summer concert series with live music on select nights this summer including June 7 and 30 with food at their Compass Cafe, possibly adult beverages and the occasional fireworks show.
