Concerts in the Park changes location, adds food trucks

The annual free outdoor concert series, known for years as Concerts in the Park, will officially move location to the Juneau Arts & Culture Center at 350 Whittier for the summer. The series opens on Friday, June 7, at 5:30 p.m. with the Thunder Mountain Big Band.


The Council has invited local food trucks to gather in the parking lot each Friday, creating Food Truck Fridays with live music and fun food as well as artists, who have been invited to set up booths as well.

In press release, Kari Groven wrote that they anticipate “creating a festive evening of fun for the whole family.”

When the weather is inclement, the events will be in the JACC Main Hall.

Performers and food trucks interested in participating may sign up online at

In addition to the Friday night concerts, the Council is coordinating live music at the Juneau International Airport on Sunday evenings from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m . “Music on the Fly” is patterned after similar offerings in airports such as the Portland International Airport. The mission and purpose for Music on the Fly is to uplift and soothe travelers as they begin or end their journeys at the Juneau International Airport, to encourage local residents to visit and enjoy the airport and its amenities as a destination in and of itself, to give local entertainers performance opportunities and to set the tone for Juneau as Alaska’s Creative Capital, according to the press release.

Both Food Truck Fridays and Music on the Fly are sponsored in part by Holland America Princess, with additional support from the City and Borough of Juneau.

Please call Groven or Nancy Decherney at 586-2787 with questions about either program.
