Swallow Hills Shady Grove Picnic Series
at Four Mile Historic Park is surely one of those hidden gems of summer: Its laid-back and easy, cheap for families and full of great music and musicians, most of them also hidden gems and many of them locals. The music begins at 6:30 p.m.; bring your own basket and lawn chairs early to enjoy the bucolic ambiance of the park, located at 715 S. Forest Street.
Concerts continue weekly on Wednesdays, through August 26 (including one on July 8 with the imaginative up-and-coming local star John Common); admission is $2 to $10 at the gate. Go to www.swallowhillmusic.org or call 303-777-1003.
Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m. Starts: June 3. Continues through Aug. 26, 2009
