“It’s not only music. It’s not only art. It’s a community. It’s a sense of having a place to belong.”
– Jared Leto, singer/actor/songwriter

It won’t be long before live music floods Downtown Lakewood, echoing through neighborhood streets and beckoning families and concert-goers alike to the heart of the city.

LakewoodAlive’s Front Porch Concert Series returns to the front steps of Lakewood Public Library for 11 consecutive Friday evenings (7 to 9 p.m.) starting June 22.  Sponsored by Bentley Wealth Management of Raymond James, this popular summer series features a wide array of free, live music in a welcoming downtown environment.

The 2018 edition of the Front Porch Concert Series will offer something for every musical taste.  From folk to rock to jazz, each weekly concert remains family-friendly while delving into diverse musical genres.  Like a crowd-pleasing encore performance, this Lakewood summer tradition is sure to delight its audience.

Now in its ninth year, the popular Front Porch Concert Series adds vibrancy and an enhanced sense of community to Lakewood’s urban core, drawing several thousand attendees annually.

Concert-goers are encouraged to bring family, friends, snacks, blankets and chairs.  In the event of inclement weather, the affected concert will be moved inside Lakewood Public Library.
