Friday nights from May 19th to September 8th are free bluegrass music shows in the Clovis Veterans Liberty Park. Located east of the Veterans Memorial Building and west of the San Joaquin College of Law, across the street from the Mercedes Edwards Theater there is a small shady grassy park that is home to the ninth year of Bluegrass in the Park shows. These shows feature local and visiting musicians, and with a different band each Friday, the variety and talent is amazing. A point to remember is the musicians receive no compensation for their effort other than the tips received, so consider those offerings please. Bring a chair or blanket and a picnic supper (there are no food vendors on site) from Farmer’s Market or from home and plan on a friendly family oriented atmosphere. There’s lots of room for the kids to dance in the area behind the audience and you’re guaranteed a good time. Hot summer temperatures are no deterrent with the ample shade and evening breezes. Co-sponsored by the California Bluegrass Association.
