Every summer from late June through the end of August, music lovers in the Eureka area receive a special treat — free concerts! Held on successive Thursdays from 6 to 8pm, these concerts have become a popular annual tradition. Genres range across a musical spectrum that includes rock, blues, country, reggae, Cajun, and every now and then, a taste of Celtic. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, creating the perfect opportunity to let your hair down and “laissez les bons temps rouler” (“let the good time roll” in Cajun French).
The entertainment is top-notch, and generally imported from outside of the area. The crowds are lively but mellow, making it a family-friendly event. The Summer Concert Series is sponsored by Main Street Eureka, Bi-Coastal Media and the City of Eureka.
