Anythink’s Backyard Concert Series brings the community together through music. 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. Food options include Basecamp Provisions and Little India.
Not only is this a fun, free Friday night – it’s also a fundraiser for the Anythink Foundation. Funds raised through food and beverage sales help Anythink to provide special programs and projects for the community. Supporters can also donate at the show and online here.
The Backyard Concert Series is free and open to the public, from 6:30-8:30 pm, on the second Friday of each month.
