Music Mondays Free Concert Series on the Arts Plaza for July and August

Exciting Line-Up and Even More Music

The Center For The Arts Foundation announces the line-up for its 14th  Music Mondays concert series each Monday of July and August, held at Gresham’s Arts Plaza. This series continues the Foundation’s commitment to bringing a diverse, and exciting line-up of musicians to the community. The FREE family-friendly concerts and activities start earlier this year, starting at 5:30 pm and ending at 8:30 pm each Monday.

The Foundation’s Board of Directors strongly supports celebrating the variety of cultures found in our community.  

This year each event will be a “Party On The Plaza” with an opening act at 5:30 with food and beverages, kids activities, and ways to support the Center For The Arts Foundation’s efforts to bring new and more arts and culture to our community.

Come a little early, find a comfortable place to sit on the bricks or the grass, and have dinner with your family/friends while listening to great music. The Hoppy Brewer will be serving beer and wine; GBYBS is selling concessions plus hot dogs; there will be a taco stand; elote; Chapman’s BBQ; Tany’s Bakery; and Kona Ice.

Join us in supporting the arts right here in our community; providing positive, cultural performances, exposing audiences to new and traditional arts; and supporting artists who have been hit hard during the pandemic.  This summer concert series is produced due to support from local sponsors, including Northwest Accounting Partners; FedEx Ground, City of Gresham; RACC;  and many of our area business and community members. If you are interested in participating in support, contact [email protected] or  Follow us on FB for updated information
