Sweet Summer Sounds

July 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The sounds of music will return to Hinckley’s Westside Park again in 2024. Sweet Summer Sounds will be entering its 9th year of bringing fun and unique entertainment to the downtown area (minus 1 year in 2020 due to COVID). The initial series of concerts was funded entirely by the city of Hinckley. Since that time all the programs that followed have received varying levels of support funding from ECRAC (East Central Regional Arts Council), in addition to some city funding, for continued operation.

An outstanding lineup of musical and artistic talent will fill the summer air this year, starting with the first concert on Thursday, June 6th. All of the concerts will be held at the Hinckley Westside Park Bandshell and all of them start at 6:30 pm on Thursday evenings, EXCEPT for the final event which will be held on Tuesday, August 6th. All concerts are free and open to the public. As in previous years, in case of rain (or snow?) the entertainment will still be held but will move indoors to the Hinckley Community Center, just a stone’s throw away from the Westside Park Bandshell. In addition to your local newspaper, concert updates can be found on Facebook’s “Sweet Summer Sounds 2024” web page, and heard on WCMP/KBEK radio stations, so be sure to bookmark that page and bookmark it for future reference.

*These activities are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the East Central Regional Arts Council thanks to legislative appropriations from the MN Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
