Even though much of Wisconsin is haphazardly reopening and prematurely returning to life as usual in spite of scientific data insisting that’s a horrible and deadly idea during a worldwide pandemic, most event organizers in and around Milwaukee are doing their part to keep people safe. By this point, virtually every Milwaukee festival, block party, and summer music series has been either postponed or (more often) canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
Over the weekend, Enderis Park Neighborhood Association became the latest to make the difficult but logical decision to cancel a summer undertaking when they announced its 2020 season of its Concerts On The Green series would no longer be happening.
We are disappointed to announce that the 2020 season of Concerts On The Green has been canceled. The decision to cancel was made in light of the numerous challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic such as maintaining appropriate social distancing, meeting national and local guidelines for public events, difficulties of fundraising, and ensuring the safety of our performers, volunteers, vendors and attendees.
Though our 2020 season is canceled, we ask that you remember our previous season’s sponsors. Concerts On The Green cannot happen without their generous support, and now they need us more than ever. Let them know you appreciate their commitment to Concerts On The Green through your continued patronage.
Please stay engaged with our social channels for updates. We hope to be able to bring you a few surprises in the coming months.
The Concerts On The Green planning committee will continue its work to create an exciting 2021 concert season. As they say in the music business, stay tuned.
Enderis Park Neighborhood Association has been hosting Concerts On The Green since 2005. This year’s series was to consist of four nights of music—June 18, July 9, July 23, and August 13—and feature an eclectic musical lineup including the likes of Buffalo Gospel, Matt Tyner, Failure To Launch, R&B Coquettes, and more.
