Knox County is again hosting its Second Saturday Concert Series this summer as the parks and recreation department will oversee live entertainment for the whole family at The Cove and New Harvest Park.
The free concerts are held 6 to 8 p.m. June through August on the second Saturday of each month. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or lawn chairs. No alcohol is allowed.
The dates and bands for summer 2019 are:
- June 8 – Kutzu (The Cove) and Pair of Jokers (New Harvest)
- July 13 – Leftfoot Dave and the Magic Hats (The Cove) and Wild Blue Yonder (New Harvest)
- Aug. 10 – The Jennings Street Band (The Cove) and Rick Yost (New Harvest)
“The concert series is one of our biggest events of the summer,” said Paul White, senior director of the county’s parks and recreation department. “Folks come from all around the area to have a picnic, listen to music and check out some of the nicest places in Knox County.”
The Cove features other summertime amenities: a beach, playground, sand volleyball court, walking trail and fishing areas. River Sports also rents canoes and kayaks.
New Harvest Park includes a pavilion, walking trail, playground and splash pad.
If any concert has to be canceled due to inclement weather, a notification will be posted to the Knox County Parks & Rec Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/knoxcountyparks/ and the Park’s Twitter page https://twitter.com/knoxcountyparks.
