Music on the Lawn — Sponsored by The Point Association

 

Music on the Lawn, a popular and fun event sponsored by the Point Association for our neighbors, will be held on 8 eight successive TUESDAY evenings from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., beginning July 20 and ending September 7. The artist lineup includes many past favorites and some new surprises. The new food truck A Mano Pizza & Gelato, and the returning truck Castaway Gourmet, will rotate weekly. Both trucks sell non-alcoholic beverages. We will not offer alcoholic beverages this year, but BYOB is welcome. We are making the switch to Tuesdays (as was planned last summer) to not hold our concerts on the same nights as Newport Film. Admission is free; a 50/50 raffle will be conducted to support Friends of Music at St. John’s. 

Note:  The fun does NOT move indoors in case of rain! (as was policy in 2019). Guild Hall is WAY too loud a space for even unamplified bands; we learned this the painful hard way. Rain date is the next night, when possible.
