Musical entertainment found in Evart this summer
EVART — Regardless of age or background, most people have some love for music.
The 22nd annual Evart Summer Concert Series, hosted by the Evart Downtown Development Authority, is an event for all ages who love all different types of music. Hundreds are drawn to the city each summer to enjoy an evening of family-friendly, toe-tapping tunes.
Nine concert events are scheduled from June through August, offering free entertainment at one of many city locations, such as the Evart Depot, Riverside Park and Main Street. Genres including classic rock, oldies, folk, country and pop will be represented this year.
Evart Downtown Development Authority Director Al Weinberg said the concert series could not take place without support and donations from local individuals and businesses, along with grants from the Osceola County Community Foundation.
Full concert schedules can be found around the Evart community, on the Downtown Evart Facebook page and on evart.org. In case of rain, the performances will take place inside of Crossroads Community Church across from the depot building.
