Five Concerts Remain in Potomac Overlook Summer Series

West on 66 performs (photo via Facebook)The Potomac Overlook Regional Park summer concert series is in full swing, with half of its slate of concerts still on tap through mid-September.

The concert series has been an annual tradition at the 70-acre park in North Arlington just off the GW Parkway, providing free outdoor performances of local and regional acts in a family setting, said Park Manager Roy Geiger.

“It’s a kick-back-and-relax time,” Geiger said. “You’ve got whole families coming down, kids in strollers, all ages up to senior citizens. So along come the blankets, lawn chairs, picnic baskets and even some dogs sitting there quietly.”

The crowds at the outdoor venue — which Geiger describes as a Wolf Trap-like feel but “without the big crowds” — vary depending on the weather, but reach into the hundreds on the nice Saturday evenings. The concerts are all put on from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Below is the schedule for the remainder of the season.

  • Aug. 3 — Surrender Friday (classic rock)
  • Aug. 17 — West on 66 (classic rock, pictured above)
  • Aug. 31 — Michael Mulvaney (blues and folk)
  • Sept. 7 — Andrew Acosta (bluegrass)
  • Sept. 14 — Second Wind (Southern rock)
