As the days heat up, summer concert series pop up around the Olympic Peninsula. There are community concerts planned most days of the week. Venues range from waterfront piers to forested parks. Some are alcohol free while others have local beer and wine for sale. In Port Angeles there are bubbles and sidewalk chalk for the kids and Port Townsend’s concert series has a beer, cider, and wine garden. Grab your lawn chair or picnic blanket and head to a venue near you.
