One of the best things about the next few months of the year is being able to go to outdoor events without having to get all suited up in your snowpants and mukluks. Two ongoing events that we know we'll be checking out this summer are the Sonic Lunch series and the Ann Arbor Summer Fest.
Sonic Lunch happens every Thursday starting at 11:30am-1:30pm at the corner of Liberty and Division in downtown Ann Arbor. Bank of Ann Arbor’s series of free summer outdoor concerts started way back in 2008 so its not new to the scene, but they keep it freshly stocked with talent. Sonic Lunch features a live band from an impressive array of talent in the region, as well as national and international acts. Each week, lunch will be available on-site for purchase from a local vendor. Sonic Lunch concerts are free and suitable for all ages. Seating is available but lawn chairs are welcome. Join the crowds for an energizing mid-day break or just relax and enjoy the sounds.
Now entering its 35th season, The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is an exhilarating celebration of performing arts, outdoor entertainment, and community spirit. Events are going on NOW through July 4th; Day and evening, weekday and weekend! The nearly four-week gathering offers dozens of performances, activities, exhibitions, and screenings representative of the best in music, dance, contemporary circus, comedy, film, spectacle, street arts, and family entertainment. A2SF produces two concurrent programs, one indoor (ticketed events) and one outdoor (“Top of the Park” - FREE!), at various venues and spaces across the University of Michigan campus and in downtown Ann Arbor.
