2021 Lowell Summer Music Series Begins in August

Share this post:

Lowell Summer Music Series, presented by the Lowell Festival Foundation, is proud to announce that live music will return to downtown Lowell starting in August.


Based on current federal guidelines, Lowell Summer Music Series’ primary venue, Boarding House Park, located on the grounds of the Lowell National Historical Park, is not currently cleared to host full-capacity events. The intention is to host all events at Boarding House Park if it is permitted, but Lowell Memorial Auditorium has been secured as a back-up location to ensure there will be live music in downtown Lowell this Summer!


Below is the updated 2021 Lowell Summer Music Series schedule. Shows originally scheduled for June or July have been rescheduled for later in the Summer or moved to the 2022 Season.


“We are extremely happy to be able to reopen the Summer Music Series after so many long months without live music – indoors or outdoors,” said Peter Aucella, General Manager of the series. “We are seeing a real enthusiasm for this and we’re looking forward to doing our part to bring quality concert programs back to Downtown Lowell!”

The 2021 Season of the Lowell Summer Music Series is its 31st year of presenting national recording artists in a beautiful outdoor setting near a historic textile mill and boarding house. Patrons bring lawn chairs and blankets to view the show from the lawn.  Premium Seating provides a chair in the first few rows, right in front of the stage.  In 2021, Lowell Memorial Auditorium at 50 East Merrimack Street will be the home of the series until federal restrictions are lifted on Boarding House Park which is owned by the National Park Service.


The Series is co-presented by the Lowell Festival Foundation at Boarding House Park which is owned by the Lowell National Historical Park. It is located at 40 French Street, Lowell, MA 01852 in downtown at the Boott Mills. Get tickets at www.lowellsummermusic.org or by calling 1-800-657-8774.
