Tuesday Night Blues series extended two weeks

Concord's popular Tuesday Night Blues series, which has traditionally taken place every Tuesday evening in July on the Todos Santos stage, will run through Aug. 11 this year. Off the Grid will bring its selection of food trucks to the plaza for Blues, Brews & BBQs, and restaurants around Todos Santos Plaza will roll out the red carpet for blues fans.

Delta Wires launches the series July 7, 6:30 to 8 p.m., with an evening of high-energy harmonica and horns.  In addition to great blues, visitors will be treated to Cool Concord Cars, a vintage car show, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Auto enthusiasts show off everything from lovingly restored cars from the mid-1900s to Chevys from the ‘50s and custom wheels from more recent years.

Upcoming blues shows include David Landon (July 14), Alvon Johnson (July 21), Loose Blues (July 28), Charged Particles (Aug. 4), and finishing with Concord's own Blues Diva Annie Sampson (Aug. 11).

In addition to Tuesday Blues, Todos Santos Plaza hosts the Thursday Music and Market series through Sept. 17. The Farmer's Market is in the plaza from 4 to 8 p.m. with music from 6:30 to 8 p.m. On Saturday, July 4, a series of Independence Day events will include a pancake breakfast at 7:30 a.m., Police Officer's Association 5K Fun Run at 8 a.m.,  and Concord's July 4th parade at 10 a.m. Festivities continue a few blocks away at 4 p.m. at Mt. Diablo High School with a family carnival followed by fireworks at 9 p.m.
