Free concert series at Canal Square | Arts & Culture
The Cohoes Caretakers have joined with the Cohoes Local Development Corporation (CLDC) to present the sixteenth season of free concerts at Canal Square. These concerts cover music genres from Bluegrass to Polka over the nine week concert series season.
“It is our belief that the concert series is a catalyst to downtown development. People come to downtown to enjoy a Friday evening out including a visit to the Cohoes Farmers' Market and possibly dinner at one of the several great places to eat in downtown Cohoes,” said Executive Director Edward Tremblay.
The concerts are made possible by the generosity of corporate and private sponsors from the City of Cohoes. The concerts begin on Friday, July 2 and continue until August 27, 2010. Patrons are encouraged to bring a lawn for comfortable seating. The Cohoes Senior Center at Cayuga Plaza serves as a rain location for the concerts. The full concert series is listed on the City of Cohoes Web site, www.cohoes.com.
