40th Street Summer Series

 

 

 

The 40th Street Summer Series—co-produced by University City District, Penn, and The Rotunda—enlivens the green area behind the Walnut Street Library at 40th Street with free monthly concerts every summer. We will announce the 2017 concert schedule in the spring!

In the past the Summer Series has featured internationally-acclaimed acts such as the Millennial Territory Orchestra, Man Man, and the Sun Ra Arkestra— to play free outdoor concerts that capture the soul of the neighborhood. This year, the series will run from June through September. The Summer Series brings business during the typically slow summer months by increasing patronage at nearby retailers and building upon the existing vibrancy of 40th Street, while providing entertaining, enriching and safe outlets for families, visitors and students.
