The Ashland City Band, directed by Christine Lundahl and sponsored by the city of Ashland, Oregon, presents an annual series of “concerts in the park” every summer. The concerts take place at the Butler Band Shell in Ashland’s beautiful Lithia Park every Thursday from late June until early August. (If July 4th occurs on a Thursday, there is no concert that evening.) Concerts are free and a variety of pre-concert entertainment groups play each week, usually beginning at about 6:00. Bring the family, bring a picnic, bring a friend, and enjoy these free concerts this summer. The City Band also presents a July 4th Concert at noon in the Band Shell after the parade.
