Free Summer Concerts In Smithtown Return for Season

Your guide to the free summer concert series happening around the Town of Smithtown this summer.

 

Grab a lawn chair, a blanket and your favorite snack to sit down and enjoy one of the many free concerts happening in the Town of Smithtown this summer. 

There's no shortage of opportunities to get together with family and friends to watch a live band at one of the various summer concert series sweeping through the area. The Smithtown Special Library District, Hauppauge Public Library, Nesconset Chamber of Concert and Town of Smithtown's Park Department are among the groups who have put together a star-packed lineup. 

Popular acts include Billy Joel and Beatles tribute bands, but those looking to get up and dance can get free Latin lessons on June 19 in Kings Park.

If you're a lover of movie and television theme songs, Smithtown Community Band will pay tribute to composer John Williams, playing themes from "The Empire Strikes Back," "Harry Potter," "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "ET – The Extraterrestrial," "Jurassic Park" and more.
