Free Outdoor Summer Family Concerts in Westchester and the Hudson Valley

Grab a blanket, picnic dinner, and family and friends: A free outdoor concert is just the thing to end your day on a relaxing note. 

This summer, many towns and villages are hosting bands playing everything from rock and jazz to country and swing. Some concerts are even dedicated specifically to the younger set, with local kid-bop stars piling on the entertainment. While some events involve a modest fee for parking and perhaps the optional food purchase, admission is our favorite price: FREE.

Looking for more summer fun? We've also rounded up FREE outdoor movies for yet more ways to soak up the season. Also consult our Event Calendar and Summer Activity Guide, 'cause there's loads more in store. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to stay informed of more great ways to rock this summer!

50 Free Things to Do in Houston With Kids This Summer

Summer days mean extra sunlight, lots of time with friends and filling our days with as many engaging and entertaining activities as possible.

To help any other families who may want to save a buck without sacrificing any fun, here's a bucket list of 50 FREE activities we'll be taking advantage of this summer - but make sure to check our event calendar every day for more family-friendly fun around Houston.
