All summer, from early July until early September, Perkins Cove is alive with the sounds of music on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 6-8pm.

Bring your lawn chair (if you wish), a picnic, and gather your family and friends to enjoy evenings of live music in Ogunquit. All summer long, enjoy concerts featuring a great line-up of local ensembles and solo singer-songwriters performing at Rotary Park in Perkins Cove.

 

Last summer featured some terrific musical talent and families and friends’ groups flocked to Perkins Cove to enjoy evenings with live music floating across the salty sea air. The summer 2024 music line up will be announced a bit later in the spring and promises to be stellar.

Summer music in Perkins Cove and is presented by the Ogunquit Parks & Recreation Committee.  Free Admission.
