MIddlesex County, NJ -  The Middlesex County Freeholders invite residents to come out to our County Parks for another summer of free outdoor concerts.  This year, the focus is on variety, with shows featuring everything from Americana to Zydeco, offered in some of the county's most scenic parks.

Music-in-the-Park is a great outdoor opportunity that the whole family can enjoy,” said Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “Grab a chair or blanket and get ready to enjoy the sounds of summer.”

“Whether you’re a music lover or just a casual fan, this series offers something for everyone,” said Freeholder Charles Kenny, Chair of the Infrastructure Management Committee. “You can explore Jazz, Motown, Classic Rock and much more with these free live performances.”
