Second Saturday Concert Series
Summer is our favorite time of year, and we’re celebrating with music all season long! This family-friendly gathering is free to the community each month and brings together local bands, local food, and Grainworks’ signature local brews. We’ve selected a series of bands that have the perfect summer vibe and will get you dancing and having fun in our outdoor venue!
Various food vendors will be on hand for each concert. Lyons BBQ heads up our first concert 5/11 with many many smoked delights, including brisket, pulled pork, smoked wings, smoked salmon, you name it!
The summer-long Second Saturday concert series serves as a lead-up to Grainworks’ second anniversary bash September 6th-8th, with many of the bands returning to the stage for the weekend event.
Performance time for all concerts is 7-11pm
All shows are outdoors, weather-dependent, and will take place at our taproom location (7790 Service Center Drive), just off Cox Road and across from Voice of America Park in West Chester. Bring your own lawn chair or blanket and arrive early to grab the best spots!
