And starting this year . . . there’s more! Art In The Square and — Your Sister’s Tomato Wood Fired Pizza. Truly the best way to spend a summer evening in Woodstock or anywhere else. Read more below.
Our first concert is June 25, 2023:
About Corner Boys
Featuring outstanding guitarwork, wonderful harmonies, and the original music of Kris Nichols.
Dave Kunzweiler, Paul Hilderbrand and Michael Rothstein, aka Corner Boys, together bring their lifelong passion for music to the stage. The name Corner Boys comes from an east coast tradition of late night harmonies sung on the street corner.
Not your typical acoustic cover band, the Corner Boys playlist runs from Lyle Lovett, to Michael Jackson to our own Kris Nichols. The attention to detail, dynamics and nuance makes for an evening of fabulous music. Their goal is to touch people with their music and to share the joy that they get from their art.
Sundays on the Square – celebrate music & summer outdoors
Sundays on the Square in 2023 run every Sunday, June 25 – Sept 3, except for July 16 (the Woodstock Folk Festival is always scheduled the third Sunday in July).
Enjoy some great bands from 5:00 – 7:00 pm CDT. We gather on the historic Woodstock Square, Cass & Van Buren Streets, Woodstock IL 60098. Shows vary, some with one and some with two acts, featuring local, regional, and national talent.
Restaurants on the Square are usually open on these evenings with carry-out items, but please confirm with specific places. Of course you can bring your own food items and picnic on the Square. Also, be sure to bring chairs!
Sunday evenings on the Square are always a memorable part of summer in the Woodstock area. Watch this website for updates and specifics on the bands. Better yet, subscribe to our email list if you aren’t already on it!
