Crew Review: "Summer Outdoor Concerts In Fishers"

Part of the summer fun is getting outdoors.  It's especially fun to gather with friends and family on a summer evening and listen to great tunes. 

On this trip we attended the first of many Summer Outdoor Concerts in the Town of Fishers.  The band Living Proof was rocking the stage and it was a great evening!  Concerts are free and held each Tuesday in June and July from 7-9PM in the lawn in front of the Town buildings located off of 116th street by the post office.  Arrive earlier to get parking and set up your chairs and blankets.  Other areas such as Westfield, Noblesville, Carmel, and Indy also have summer concerts and that info can be found on our website HERE!

Get More Info On the Fishers Summer Concerts HERE!


The place gets packed, arrive early to set up your chairs and blankets!




Pack your treats and eats or dine before you come.  No food is sold on site, but you can bring food and alcoholic beverages to enjoy during the show! 




We saw lots of pooches taking a stroll and enjoying the show, too!





The crowds are big, but there's lots of space for everyone!

Watch this video of the band in action and the crowd enjoying the tunes!




The kids danced in the streets and enjoyed displaying their chalk art as well.  A few groups even brought balls and chalked off four square courts to play on. 

Watch the show schedule, pack your picnic basket, and catch a show or two.  Let us know if you go!
