The free, weekly Bristol Woodstock concert series at Kenosha County’s Bristol Woods Park begins this Wednesday, June 14, County Executive Samantha Kerkman announced.
Concerts will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. each Wednesday through Aug. 16, weather permitting.
Performances are on the stage in the natural amphitheater in the lawn just north of the Pringle Nature Center. Some bench seating is available; people are also encouraged to bring chairs and blankets.
“It’s going to be another great summer of music at Bristol Woods Park, and I encourage people to come out and enjoy it,” Kerkman said. “Thank you to all of our performers, sponsors, and other partners for making it possible.”
The Bristol Woodstock series is sponsored by Kenosha County Parks, State Farm agent Mindy Cooling, and Pringle Nature Center.
Warren Leisemann, chairman of the nonprofit Pringle Nature Center Board of Directors, said the organization is proud to join with its fellow sponsors in bringing another season of music to the stage at Bristol Woods Park.
“This concert series has grown each year, and we’re looking forward to again seeing all of the folks who’ve attended so consistently in the past and hope to see new attendees this year,” Leisemann said. “Bring your lawn chairs and snacks. We’ll be here to greet you and introduce the bands. And, yes, we’ll be making popcorn again.”
