Anythink Backyard Concert Series | Presented by Mountain States Toyota

Our longtime concert tradition returns to Anythink Wright Farms this summer with three exciting in-person shows! Grab the family and meet new neighbors at the one-acre park adjacent to Anythink Wright Farms, located at 5877 E. 120th Ave. in Thornton. You don’t even have to pack your picnic basket – we’ll have food and beverages available for purchase at a minimal price, including delicious barbecue from Dickey's Barbecue Pit and beer from Great Divide.

Not only is this a fun, free Friday night – it’s also a fundraiser for the Anythink Foundation. All proceeds from this year’s Backyard Concert Series will help us expand The Anythink Box, a subscription service that provides kids ages 5-12 with books at their doorstep. The initiative was so popular upon launch that it's since grown to include a waitlist of interested families. Your support will help us reach more kids in Adams County with this one-of-a-kind service. Supporters can donate in-person, online or by texting BACKYARD to 50155. This year's lineup includes:

The Reminders – Friday, June 11 – 6:30-8:30 pm
SuperMagick – Friday, July 9 – 6:30-8:30 pm
Bison Bone – Friday, Aug. 13 – 6:30-8:30 pm

The Backyard Concert Series is free and open to the public, from 6:30-8:30 pm, on the second Friday of each month. Food and drinks will be available starting at 5:30 pm. You can also watch the concerts live from anywhere with our Facebook and YouTube livestreams.
