Concrete and Grass Lowertown Music Festival

The sixth annual Concrete and Grass Lowertown Music Festival has planned three days of free music in lovely Mears Park. The festival marks the launch of the fall performance season for the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Minnesota Opera, the Ordway, and the Schubert Club, and presents a unique, tasteful blend of music for fans of all ages. Other than the sure-to-be-stirring performances by the aforementioned classical groups, the highlight of this year's Concrete and Grass Festival is the closing set from the Jayhawks' Gary Louris (pictured). In addition to the music, there will be food, wine, and beer provided from the exceptional restaurants in the Lowertown Entertainment District, as well as popular food trucks spread throughout the park. With Dosh, All Eyes, the Butanes with Willie Walker, Mississippi Peace, the Copper Street Brass Quintet, and Jack Brass Band. Free, 7 p.m. on Friday, 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 4 p.m. on Sunday.
