Cherokee Triangle Summer Concerts
The Highlands area of Louisville is always a fun place to be during the summer. First of all, its main strip Bardstown Road is a cool place to walk up and down when the weather is nice. Cherokee Park, too, is a must-hit spot when it's beautiful outside. Another landmark location in the Highlands is Cherokee Triangle, a historic neighborhood located within the boundaries of Bardstown Road, Cherokee Park, and Eastern Parkway. While Cherokee Triangle is probably most well-known for hosting the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair in April, the neighborhood still puts on events all throughout the summer.
One of the biggest draws to Cherokee Triangle this summer are the concerts that are performed every Sunday night this summer. Every concert is free, so good, free music is certainly worth taking advantage of. Like the art festival, the concerts will be performed in Willow Park, located between Willow Avenue and Cherokee Road and adjacent to the infamous John Castleman statue. If you've found the giant man on horseback, you've found where the summer concerts are being held.
You're sure to hear a wide variety of music at the Cherokee Triangle concerts. For example, for every summer in July, bands that play classic rock, soul, funk, cajun, blues, and salsa can be found in Willow Park on a Sunday night. All you have to do is show up at Willow Park between 7 PM and 11 to hear one of these eclectic bands.
As stated, there is no charge to attend the outdoor concert, but there are a few rules worth noting. For example, no alcohol is allowed on the premises. The same goes for pets--if you have a dog, you'll have leave them at home. It's not required, but if you like, Dare to Care will be collecting canned goods and hygiene products for people in need, so you can support a local charity while you enjoy your funk, cajun, or soul music!
Willow Park is located on 1402 Willow Avenue. If you're interested, go ahead and take advantage of the free music every Sunday night. Expect large crowds--Willow Park will be filled with eager listeners throughout the summer. If you're looking to relax, just bring a towel or a lawn chair to lounge in. The summer concerts at Cherokee Triangle are just another reason why this neighborhood is such a cool place to visit in the Highlands.
