All the local places to go and things to do.

Hudsonville’s summer concert series is back with a lineup of artists sure to keep Veteran’s Park rocking each Thursday night this summer. The Huntington Concerts on the Green series runs from June 14-July 26 with concerts starting each Thursday night at 7 p.m. Concertgoers should plan to bring their own chair or blanket to the concert. 

Thanks to concert sponsor, Huntington Bank, series sponsors, DeGraaf Interiors, the Downtown Development Authority, and generous weekly sponsors, the concerts will feature both music and entertainment for kids.

“The kids’ activities have been really taken to a new level,” says Michelle Fare, marketing coordinator with the City of Hudsonville. “We have been able to put together a line up of kids’ activities which will be really exciting for the residents.”

Each week will feature a different activity; there will be bounce houses, slides, carnival games, putt putt golf, crafts, and other great activities. Concertgoers can also grab dinner at the park from on-site food vendors each week. Food options will include DJ’s Pizza, Uncle Ed’s Mexican Food Truck, The Silver Spork, Shortstops, and a barbecue dinner at the final concert, sponsored by Evergreen Ministries. In addition, the fire department will be selling pints of Hudsonville Ice Cream again this year as a fundraiser.
