What better way to spend a warm summer evening than listening to great entertainment with your family and friends at an outdoor concert?
The Thursday evening shows begin promptly at 8:00pm, but it is recommended that you plan on arriving early. The shows return to the front lawn of the Smithtown Library on East Main Street at the intersection of NYS Routes 25, 25A and 111 in downtown Smithtown. Bring your favorite chair or blanket with you.
