One of the great traditions of being a part of the Hudson community is the Summer Music Festival held annually on the Green in Downtown Hudson. The Summer Music Festival has been produced since 1977. Come and join us on the Green at the Bandstand for another summer of great music.

We also welcome any suggestions for music to add or remove from our musicians. We want to keep it fresh while still providing you the music genre you want to listen too.


For More information, visit Hudson Bandstand 

The Hudson Bandstand has partnered with Hudson Community Foundation, opening a fund to build an endowment, the “Hudson Bandstand Endowment Fund”.  Funds raised will go to building an endowment so that Hudson Bandstand summer concerts on the Green will continue in perpetuity.

The Bandstand’s 2024 season is planned to open on Monday, May 27, with a concert by the Hudson High School Jazz 1 & 2 bands. This popular performance by our high school’s talented musicians is a Memorial Day weekend favorite.
