Each year The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council seeks a variety of quality local and regional bands to perform at our outdoor summer concert series. Summer concerts are held on Wednesday evenings, at various community parks in July and August. All concerts are outdoor venues with a covered mobile stage or gazebo for the performers. The Arts Council provides a sound system and technician.  We work closely with an outside company (Gigs4U) to manage the roster of performers for our concert series.
