Dublin Art Council’s Outdoor Concert Series Will Return In August

The Dublin Arts Council (DAC) announced the return of DAC Sundays at Scioto.

The concert series was on hiatus in 2020 due to the pandemic and it’s returned with a variety of local, regional, and nationally touring musicians. The weekly concerts will take place in the outdoor amphitheater at Scioto Park, (7377 Riverside Dr.)

The Sunday evening concerts will begin August 15 and run through October 3, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The concerts are free to attend.

“Dublin Arts Council is thrilled to support artists and bring free Sunday evening concerts back to our community,” says Guion. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to lounge on the grass overlooking the river and enjoy a fantastic variety of musical genres, including everything from artist tribute bands to zydeco.”

Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic items to the concerts. Masks will not be required, but they are recommended for non-vaccinated guests. You can see a full lineup for the concert series below. For more information, visit dublinarts.org/sundaysatscioto.
