About the Series

Free and fun for the entire family, the CFCU Downtown Ithaca Summer Concert Series  will broadcast virtually at 6:00 pm each Thursday between July 9 and September 24, 2020. The concerts are traditionally held at the Bernie Milton Pavilion on the Commons; however, this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the shows will appear virtually online here and the Downtown Ithaca Facebook Page until further notice.

Local and national acts perform music in genres including jazz, blues, reggae, folk, hip hop, country, bluegrass, rock, and more.

The concerts are all ages, so tune in with the whole family! And, even plan takeout from one of the restaurants in Downtown Ithaca to complete the experience!
