The series kicks off with a performance by The Polkaholics 7 p.m. Wednesday at North Center Town Square, 4100 N. Damen Ave. Local bands will perform at the same time and place Wednesdays through Aug. 10, said Eileen Keleghan, executive director of the North Center Chamber of Commerce.

“Bring a chair or blanket, gather your family and join us,” Keleghan said.

North Center’s Town Square opened in 2020 with a performance area featuring a stage and canopy, a turf sitting area, benches, lighting, trees and landscaping. 

The $2 million project was created after the chamber, residents, business owners and local government officials pushed for an accessible, year-round public space by closing a small segment of West Belle Plaine Avenue between North Lincoln Avenue and North Damen Avenue.
