The City of Concord announced Monday that it has canceled its summer concert series, Music & Market and Tuesday Night Blues.
The city said in a release that after closely monitoring local health orders and national guidelines designed to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the City determined that its annual concerts, which typically draw thousands of people to Todos Santos Plaza, cannot be held as originally scheduled.
“With the health and safety of our community, musicians, volunteers and staff as our top priority, we plan to provide alternative virtual entertainment throughout the summer,” said Mayor Tim McGallian. “And we’ll be back in 2021 with a great lineup!”
To bring some fun to the Concord community during the shelter-at-home order, City staff introduced a virtual event series called “Concord Live!” It airs live on the City’s Facebook page every Thursday at 6 p.m. and features people from around the community who share activities that viewers can do at home.
From cooking classes and craft cocktails to workouts and art demonstrations, Concord Live! is a fun way to learn something new and connect with others.
The City of Concord encourages all residents and visitors to stay safe and to continue to follow the public health guidelines. For more information about how the City is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and to see how city operations are affected, please visit www.cityofconcord.org/covid19.
