  • June 29 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., the Barbone Street Jazz Band, an ultimate dance band with jazz and swing;
  • July 20 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., The Mango Men, whose music spans rock, pop, country and almost everything else;
  • July 23 (Wednesday) at 7 p.m., features a special return performance by the 78th U.S. Army Band and its many musical units, with popular and show tunes and tributes to service men and women and veterans;
  • July 27 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., Blue Moon;
  • Aug. 2 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., Makin’ Music Gilbertsville, a family show geared towards families with pre-school children for the first 40 minutes, then familiar favorites for the grown-ups; and
  • Aug. 10 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., a series-closing performance by The Pottsgrove Community Band, known for its marches.

In case of rain, concerts are re-scheduled for the next day at 7 p.m. The township hopes to run ever show on time, but to check its website or Facebook page to see if they are re-scheduled.

Several other municipalities within the county canceled concerts this year due to budget constraints or declining attendance.
