Summer Concert Series These family-friendly Wednesday concerts at Shelburne Farms are free. Bring a lawn chair and blanket. Pack a picnic dinner or enjoy food from the concession stand. Donations are appreciated. Kids can visit with the animals and everyone can dance on the lawn. Bad weather means the show moves into the Shelburne Town Gym at Shelburne Town Center. Call the Recreation Department at 985-9551 for last-minute updates. More details online:
