Concerts are a summer tradition in Avon and they are popping up all over town this season! In its fourth year, Pop Up Concerts will feature classical string quartets, which are scheduled to pop-up in Harry A. Nottingham Park, the Main Street Mall, and other surprise locations. Rain showers will chase these well-received concerts, if need be, into the Avon Town Hall. 

These 90-minute concerts take place May - September, and they allow locals and guests a time to unwind and relax with live classical and contemporary music. Light fare and refreshing beverages are available each evening, and these performances bring an eclectic array of musical styles, from classical strings to Spanish guitars, all performed by musicians from Colorado’s most esteemed symphonies and philharmonics.
