Starting today, Rosslyn is beefing up its summer entertainment lineup with free lunchtime concerts.

The concerts all begin this week and will take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and and Thursdays from 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Tuesday concerts, held at Freedom Park (17th Street over Lynn Street and Wilson Blvd), will run through July 31. Wednesday concerts are held at CentralSpace (Wilson Blvd and N. Moore Street), and will continue through August 29. There will be no concert on Wednesday, July 4. Thursday concerts take place at the Farmers Market (Wilson Blvd and N. Moore Street), and will have a longer season, running through October 25.

This week, Vaughn Nark & Panorama will play today, Harry Wilson will play tomorrow and Rick Franklin & Friends will play on Thursday. The full schedules of performers for the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday lunchtime concerts can be found online.

With decent weather predicted for this week, it may be the perfect time to take in the music. Last year, extreme heat forced cancellations for some of the concerts.

    In all seriousness, why don’t they build something at “CentralSpace” – seems like that’s prime development land.

    • Don the diner

      perhaps a faux New Orleans steak house would be a good idea?

  • John Fontain

    Having outdoor bands isn’t fair to the bands who play indoors.

  • WeiQiang

    What of the parents who have to get their kids through Freedom Park to – ya know – Gap Kids in Georgetown or something? These concerts are an unnecessary obstruction at taxpayers’ expense.

  • Corey

    Uh, please. “Gap” is for Herndonites. I only dress my kids in the best Talbot’s has to offer.

  • SteamboatWillie

    The brick and mortar restaurants are going to be furious that the food trucks and their take away setup will receive the unfair advantage of concerts luring lunch patrons outside.

  • Crowds

    The crowds appear to be somewhat overwhelming for this event…..probably all accompanying “Le Zimmster” on his mission to bring “haute culture” to Arlington !!

  • Obviously drew a huge crowd based on the photo.

    • MC

      The photo shown isn’t from the event today. Today featured a jazz band, quite good, though if sitting too closely people might find it too loud.
