Summer in the Street

Market Square Portsmouth
Portsmouth, NH 03801

Summer in the Street, the music series that began as a pilot program to identify pedestrian-friendly street closures back in 2003, invites all to a return to music on Pleasant Street this summer.

The program, produced by Pro Portsmouth, is supported this year by the 2021 Presenting Program Sponsor, Wentworth Douglass Hospital, and NH State Council on the Arts.

The series kicks off with Ambulate As Tolerated on July 10th followed by TJ Wheeler & Friends (7/17), The Seacoast Wind Ensemble (7/24), and Jeff Warner & Friends (7/31).

Pleasant Street from Porter Street to Market Square will be closed on each event evening from 4:00pm through 9:30pm. Vehicular traffic and parking on that section of Pleasant Street will be prohibited.

Important fun facts about Summer in the Street: All performances take place on an extremely pedestrian-friendly Pleasant street, so BYOC (bring your own chair) and enjoy the music, bring a nosh and a beverage (no alcohol, please) and note, all performances take place – weather permitting – from 5:30pm – 9:00pm.
