It's All About the Music

Home buyers come to Fairfield County for many reasons: The beaches. The schools. The lifestyle.

At KMS Partners, we answer all your questions about your new hometown. And we do it with a fantastic soundtrack in the background.

Music fills the air here. And there’s no better time to enjoy it than summer. Outdoors with a picnic or indoors at a cool venue, the music scene here is hot!

KMS is particularly proud to sponsor the Weston Historical Society’s Music at the Barn Outdoor Concert Series. Mark your calendars for PJ Pacifico (July 22) and the Stone Band (August 26), both at 5:30 p.m. Bring a lawn chair, blanket and food, for great entertainment. Then come back on September 15 for “Westonstock,” a day-long music festival with games, crafts and food trucks too. Come early to any show, and check out the great “Life in the Sixties” exhibit.

Neighboring Westport offers 55 nights of free entertainment at the Levitt Pavilion. Rock, country, jazz, big band, Motown -- whatever your taste, you’ll find it at this beautiful amphitheater on the banks of the Saugatuck River. There’s one fundraiser each year: On August 25, it’s Melissa Etheridge. For a calendar and more info, click here: http://www.levittpavilion.com/

On Labor Day weekend, the Levitt hosts Blues, Views & BBQ. Some of the best blues musicians in the world entertain -- and the barbecue can’t be beat. Bounce houses and other family-friendly attractions fill the nearby Westport Library parking lot. Click here for details: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/blues-views-bbq-festival-tickets-45933935638

There’s lots more live music in Westport too, at events like the Downtown Arts Festival (July 14-15), Farmers’ Market (Imperial Avenue parking lot, every Thursday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), Tuesdays at the Train (July 17, August 7, 5:30 p.m. Luciano Park) and Slice of Saugatuck (September, date TBD).

Neighboring Fairfield has its own rockin’ scene too. There’s always something going on at FTC, a downtown venue that attracts top-name bands and musicians. The programming is diverse, and there are plenty of nearby restaurants for pre- and post-concert meals. For more information, click here: https://fairfieldtheatre.org.

Around the corner, there’s a full (and free) summer music schedule at Fairfield’s Sherman Green Gazebo. It’s a scene straight out of Norman Rockwell, but the musical genres span the globe. Click here for the full schedule: http://www.fairfieldct.org/summerconcerts

Back in Weston, Lachat Farmers Market (last Friday of each month) features music along with fresh fruits, vegetables and anything else that grows. Here’s the website: http://www.lachattownfarm.org/farmers-market.php

Further north, both Danbury (http://citycenterdanbury.com/events/category/concerts-on-the-green/) and Ridgefield (https://chirpct.org/) have free summer concert series. The Ridgefield Playhouse books concerts by entertainers like Little Feat, Ronnie Milsap and Don McLean (https://ridgefieldplayhouse.org/live-events-2/).

There’s much more, of course. Just put your top down, drive around and listen for the sounds. Wherever you are, there’s music in the air.
