Hot Fun in the Summertime! Freeport’s Summer in the Park

June 28, 2011 by Scott Gile

Summer in the Park

Every year visitors at our Freeport Maine Bed & Breakfast enjoy the concerts and other offerings provided by what was once known as the L.L. Bean Summer Concert Series, and is now known as Summer in the Park.

Why the name change? A year or so ago L.L. Bean decided to mix it up a bit and include other summer events along with their concerts, so the name change now appropriately describes the mix of free concerts, food festivals, Shakespeare in the Park, etc., that now takes place on Saturdays, at L.L. Bean’s Discovery Park in Freeport, Maine.

Our guests love to borrow our lawn chairs, and walk to Discovery Park, where they can sit on the lawn and enjoy free concerts, and all the other activities.

This year’s Summer in the Park schedule begins this weekend, with the Fourth of July Celebration, and ends with a Labor Day weekend concert featuring the classic rock favorite, America.

This summer’s concerts include:

  • Ryan Shaw, July 2, 7:30 p.m.
  • Randy Judkins, July 3, 3:00 and 5:00 p.m.
  • Maine Academy of Modern Music, July 3 (starting at 6 p.m.)
  • The Mallett Brothers Band, July 3 (starting at 6 p.m.)
  • Red Horse, July 4, 7:30 p.m.
  • Court Yard Hounds, July 16, 7:30 p.m.
  • Amos Lee, July 30, 7:30 p.m.
  • Rickie Lee Jones, August 13, 7:30 p.m.
  • Southside Johnny, August 26, 7:30 p.m.
  • America, September 3, 7:30 p.m.

The other scheduled events include:

  • Fourth of July Celebration, Saturday July 2 – Monday July 4

Maine events – Things are happening in Maine

July 4 in Freeport Maine
We received an email from L.L. Bean today, reminding us of their giant July 4th celebration, taking place here in Freeport, on July 4 and continuing on July 5.

This is a great event every year, from the morning parade put on by the town of Freeport (we all gather on the front lawn, as it goes right past the front of Brewster House), to the sidewalk sales and other events, free concerts at L.L. Bean (Patty Loveless is on Saturday night, July 4), followed by a huge (and we do mean huge) fireworks show. It is a fun time for all!

That brings to mind several other events that are coming up in the area. The first concert in L.L. Bean’s 2009 Summer Concert Series (all concerts are free) is this weekend as Madeiline Peyroux appears in L.L. Bean’s Discovery Park in Freeport. The concerts continue every Saturday night through Labor Day.

Meanwhile, the highly acclaimed Maine State Music Theatre is presenting “Crazy for You” through July 11, followed by “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” which begins July 15.

Dan Zanes and Friends appear in the L.L. Bean Summer Concert Series on July 11, Matt Dusk on July 18, and Punch Brothers featuring Chris Thile on July 25.

Meanwhile, Brewster House and the other Historic Freeport Bed and Breakfasts‘ monthly Open House is from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. on July 17.
