New Market Concert Series Begins June 2nd at Grand Junction Plaza

The Downtown Westfield Association and Westfield Welcome have partnered to bring live music to Grand Junction Plaza this summer. The Market Concert Series presented by F.A. Wilhelm Construction will feature four concerts on the Great Lawn in the Plaza in conjunction with the Thursday evening Farmers Market.

The first concert will take place on Thursday, June 2, from 6 – 8 p.m. featuring Valerie Phelps. The Farmers Market gets underway at 5 p.m.

“Who doesn’t love live music at a farmers market? Grand Junction Plaza gives us the ultimate spot – right in the heart of downtown Westfield to shop, eat and listen to live music. We have been excited about this idea for the past year. Thanks to the generous support of F.A. Wilhelm Construction, we will host four big shows alongside the Westfield Farmers Market,” said Downtown Westfield Association CEO Steve Latour.

“F.A. Wilhelm Construction is honored to be the City of Westfield’s construction partner on Grand Junction Plaza. The project is a great addition to Westfield and will be enjoyed by the community for years to come,” said Mike Kerr, Executive Vice President of F.A. Wilhelm. “We are proud to be a sponsor for the many events planned by the City of Westfield and the Downtown Westfield Association throughout the year.”
