Elmwood Village Association announces 2018 Picnic in the Parkway lineup

Enjoying live music on Tuesday evenings in the summer on a blanket with wine and snacks is a tradition for many in the Elmwood Village and beyond.

The free Picnic in the Parkway Summer Concert Series, presented by the Elmwood Village Association, returns for another year, running weekly from June 19 to Aug. 14. The Tuesday shows, scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m., take place on the spacious lawn just east of where Bidwell Parkway intersects Elmwood Avenue. See the map at the bottom for more.

Alcoholic beverages are sold along the perimeter, while food trucks often post up for service.

Here's the full music lineup for the summer:

June 19: Tom Stahl & the Dangerfields

June 26: Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra

July 10: The Tins

July 17: Sol Y Sombra

July 24: Randle and the Late-Night Scandals

July 31: Workingman's Dead

Aug. 7: The Skiffle Minstrels

Aug. 14: Neville Francis and the Riddim Posse

Donations and proceeds from beverage sales benefit the EVA, which has been active since facing criticism from local business owners. The association released a strategic planning survey earlier this week, which can be taken by the public here.
