Save Thursday nights for Summer Serenades on the Erie Canal

By on July 8, 2019

Every Thursday evening from July 11 through August 22, enjoy the Summer Serenades music series at the Village of Brockport’s Welcome Center on the Erie Canal just east of Main Street. July performances start at 7 p.m., and August performances begin at 6:30 p.m.    

The 2019 series kicks off with Fat City on July 11. Fat City is a high-energy six-piece band who says they are “on a mission to groove and make you move.”

Summer Serenades is a program organized by the Greater Brockport Development Corporation (GBDC) that helps to showcase Brockport as a special place to live, work and shop. Attendees are encouraged to come early, meet friends, have fun, stay late, and use the new PERK card for local discounts.  

Performances are free, family friendly, and open to the public. In the event of rain or extreme heat, performances will take place inside at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 14 State Street, Brockport. 

This series is made possible solely through the generous support of many local businesses and community members, along with many hours of volunteer time.  Anyone who would like to volunteer should contact to Gary Skoog.

The GBDC is excited to announce this summer’s lineup of musicians, many with local connections.
