Starting in June, many Waukegan residents and employees will continue their longstanding tradition of lunching outdoors every Friday during the summer months while listening to free concerts held in the Waukegan Public Library courtyard.
Every Fridayfrom June 6 to August 29, musicians will perform a wide range of musical styles including jazz, rock, folk, and bluegrass from noon to 1 p.m. in front of the library on Clayton and County Streets. If it rains, concerts will move indoors to the Bradbury Room in the library’s lower level. Listeners can bring their own lunch or purchase lunch available for sale onsite from Green Town Tavern. Drinks and baked goods are also available for purchase by the Friends of the Waukegan Public Library. The Courtyard Concerts are generously sponsored each year by the Friends of the Waukegan Public Library.
