It may not be Spring yet on the SouthCoast, but that doesn't mean we can't dream of those sweet Summertime vibes.

When it comes to outdoor concerts, the Dartmouth Summer Concert Series always brings the heat (pun intended) and the sweet treats. Located at 77 Gulf Road in Dartmouth at the Gulf Hill Dairy Ice Cream Bucket (a.k.a. "The Bucket") at Apponagansett Park, concert-goers can cool down with delicious ice cream or grab a bite to eat while watching their favorite bands.

Each year, the Summer Concert Series committee consolidates some of the best local acts on the SouthCoast that guarantee to bring those relaxed warm weather vibes. This year's lineup has something for everybody from rock and roll to reggae.
