The 2020 Second Saturday Concert Series concludes this weekend at the Cove at Concord Park and near the pavilion at Clayton Park.
The free concerts are held 6 to 8 p.m. July through September on the second Saturday of each month. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets, lawn chairs and food. However, no alcohol is allowed.
Kudzu – which touts itself as grabbing pieces of all the best music and stitching them together to make something new but familiar – will play the Cove.
And Jay Dee – an indie/folk singer and songwriter from Richmond Hill – will feature her songs at Clayton Park.
Please note that under the state’s proposed guidelines for live events outside, singers must stay 15 feet from the audience and crowds can gather in groups of six but must remain six feet apart from others.
The Cove, located at 11808 S. Northshore Drive, is the county’s most visited park. It features a number of summertime amenities, including a beach, playground, sand volleyball court, walking trail and fishing areas. River Sports also rents canoes and kayaks. Clayton Park, located at 7347 Norris Freeway, includes a pavilion, grills, walking trail and playground.
If any concert has to be canceled because of the weather, the county will post a notification to the Parks and Rec Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/knoxcountyparks/ and the Park’s Twitter page https://twitter.com/knoxcountyparks.
