    About Music in Park
    Milford’s Music in the Park is a series of free summer concerts performed in Ann Street Park on selected Sunday afternoons.
    Milford has a long history of hosting some of the best jazz in the region. In fact, the borough's annual music festival evolved from the Milford Jazz Festival, first held in 2002. The festival transformed over the years to include a variety of music genres, though recent festival schedules are still typically infused with a healthy dose of jazz. The park is a short walk to dozens of shops, restaurants, bars, deli’s, art galleries, cafés and coffee shops, and the local farmers market.
    Artists to perform in the park gazebo in the past include national touring/recording artists like Caitlin Canty and Grammy Award winner Noam Pikelny, Heather Maloney, and Smithsonian Folkways recording artists Lula Wiles.
    The family-friendly park setting offers playground equipment and plenty of space to spread out and run around. Bring a picnic and blanket or chair and come hear some great music in a relaxed, beautiful setting.
