Music & Market returns July 15 to Todos Santos Plaza

The city of Concord’s Music & Market concert series will return this summer to Todos Santos Plaza on July 15 with Zydeco Flames. Last year’s series was canceled due to the citywide effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Music & Market is a Concord tradition enjoyed by thousands of people each summer who come from all over the East Bay to experience live music by local bands and pick up farm-fresh produce at the farmers’ market.

“We are excited to see Music & Market and other community events return to Concord’s ‘living room,’ ” Mayor Tim McGallian said. “As of today, more than 70% of Contra Costa residents are fully vaccinated, which has enabled us to bring back the events that our community has come to know and love. I encourage all of our residents to have some fun responsibly and, of course, get vaccinated!”

Residents and visitors can enjoy Music & Market every Thursday from July 15 through Sept. 30 at Todos Santos Plaza on the corner of Willow Pass Road and Grant Street in downtown Concord. Parking is free. The farmers’ market opens at 4 p.m., and concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. To see the full concert lineup, visit cityofconcord.org/downtownevents. For updates on the Music & Market series, follow the city of Concord on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
