The New Canaanite 2024 Summer Internship Program is sponsored by Karp Associates.

One of New Canaan’s highly anticipated summer traditions is kicking off this week.

The annual Summer Concert Series in Waveny starts at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. 

“It’s a summer must here in New Canaan,” said Steve Karl of Karl Chevrolet, a longtime sponsor of the series. “We have always supported the New Canaan Rec Department’s efforts to bring New Canaan residents together.”

Held each Wednesday evening on the lawn behind Waveny House, the concert series draws hundreds of New Canaan families who come prepared with picnic blankets, foldout chairs, food and beverages. Featuring a multitude of musical genres, from country and ‘50s doo wop to today’s hits, the concert series is sponsored by local businesses and organizations that include Kaster Moving Co. and the New Canaan Community Foundation. 

“These concerts are one of the best things they do,” Karl said. “It’s a great family event – everyone in the family can enjoy whether they’re an older resident or a younger resident.”

The concerts are “so much fun,” he added.

“There’s nothing like being up at Waveny while the sun’s setting, music playing, and just enjoying a great vibe up at the great lawn,” Karl said. “You can’t miss it.”
