The Mid-Shore Com­mu­nity Band wa­ter­front con­cert is free. Bring chairs or a blan­ket. Food from Two Chicks Cater­ing and beer and wine from the Wine Bar will be avail­able for pur­chase.

The Mid-Shore Com­mu­nity Band, an all-vol­un­teer, non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, car­ries on the tra­di­tion of com­mu­nity/town bands in the Mid­dle East­ern Shore of Mary­land. Dur­ing the golden age of the town band (1880-1922), many com­mu­ni­ties were for­tu­nate enough to have their own town bands. Cam­bridge had the Merry Con­cert Band and the Res­cue Fire Com­pany Band. These bands were a ma­jor form of en­ter­tain­ment for the com­mu­nity.

Af­ter the con­cert, stay for a view of the fire­works which start at dusk from a barge near Great Marsh Park, west of the am­phithe­ater.

The con­cert is part of the “At the Sail” se­ries of events or­ga­nized by Dorch­ester Tourism, the Dorch­ester Cham­ber of Com­merce and the City of Cam­bridge. For the lat­est up­dates, go to the “I Love Dorch­ester County” Face­book page.
