Live music is coming back to Park Central Square.
The Sounds on the Square music series will resume Thursday, August 20th, and continue through October 3rd with performances on Thursday afternoons, Friday evenings, and Saturday evenings.
“The Downtown Springfield Association is thankful to have Missouri Arts Council and the City of Springfield partner with us to alter the one-day Springfield Jazz Festival to a seven-week grassroots concert series,” Rusty Worley, DSA Executive Director, said in a statement. “Through the past two decades of revitalization, we have witnessed how important the arts are in providing programming for Park Central Square. The space provides ample room for social distancing in an historical setting designed to be a place where our community comes together. The series will support local musicians and make an evening of dining and shopping Downtown even more enjoyable.”
