Warwick. Free summer concert series returns this Saturday, July 3, at Stanley-Deming Park

    The Village of Warwick Summer Concert Series is back.

    What would have been another summer season of free concerts in the Village of Warwick last year became another casualty of the coronavirus pandemic.

    The series of free performances, under the direction of Bill Iurato, owner of Pecks Wines and Spirits, usually begins around the Memorial Day weekend and runs until mid-September. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, all 2020 performances were canceled.

    “We are happy to be hosting live events again in the Village,” Iurato said. “And for 2021 we are hosting the concert series at Stanley-Deming Park because back in May, when we were planning this, there were still physical distancing requirements for New York State. We understand that most of these requirements have been lifted, but we will stay at the temporary venue for the year.”

    He also mentioned that the natural amphitheater of the hill in the back of Stanley-Deming Park is a great place for everyone to spread out and enjoy the show.

    The Village of Warwick free summer concert series, designed to offer local residents an opportunity to bring blankets and chairs, relax outside, listen to music and even dance began in June 2000, with just four concerts and, with the exception of 2020, has grown each year by leaps and bounds.

    All shows start at 7p.m. unless otherwise noted. Just bring your chairs and blankets.
