All-season gatherings on the Town Green

Posted on August 8, 2016 at 9:43 AM by Lynne DeWilde

The Vienna Town Green was dedicated in May 2007. Since then, it has served as a gathering place for people of all ages. Two years ago, a roof was added to the stage.  The cost was split between the Town and Vienna Rotary. Rotarian Tom Kyllo provided his architectural services, and Tommy Staats provided his building services. The roof has made the acoustics even better, and it has enabled musicians to keep their instruments and themselves dry and in the shade. 

Concerts and events on the Green have been a huge success. Bands vary from national to local and from folk to rock. Families can enjoy a concert while their children dance and play. Wednesdays have been dedicated to children’s activities, Tuesdays to yoga, and some Saturdays to teens.

There are two Friday concerts left this summer. The award-winning, multi-genre Richard Walton Group performs August 12 and one of our local favorites, NRJ, plays August 19. 

At the beginning of the summer in June, the Town Green was abuzz with excitement for the hugely popular Chillin’ on Church.  Look forward to enjoying the end of summer on September 16 with friends and families on the Town Green at another Chillin’ on Church event.  

Looking forward to the fall, the Green will provide a nice reprieve to have a picnic, meet a friend, or borrow a book from the M. Jane Seeman Little Library. In winter months, the trees will be lit, and it will be a lovely time to walk through the Green, sing carols, or enjoy the Holiday Stroll.
