In 2017, Swarthmore Town Center was pleased to debut Thursday Night Live, a summer concert series in Swarthmore’s Central Park outdoor amphitheater. This free event, starting in June and running every other Thursday evening, included eight performances by local musicians. Concert attendees were encouraged to pack a picnic dinner or grab take-out from one of many restaurants in town. It was a great summer of live music under the stars. Stay tuned for information about the 2018 concert season!
