Keeney Koolers Concert Series


Summer is right around the corner and so are Wethersfield Historical Society’s annual Keeney Koolers free outdoor summer concerts! Come over to the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center, 200 Main Street, Tuesday evenings in July for great music and good friends! Bring your lawn chairs or blankets, food and beverages, and kick back and relax with some great Connecticut talent. Bring your dancing shoes! All concerts begin at 6:30 pm on the front lawn of the Keeney Center. In the event of rain, the concerts move indoors to the second floor of the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center in the Keeney Ballroom.

​Join us before the concerts for even more fun for the little ones. From 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm Wethersfield Historical Society will be hosting children’s activities, including sailing boats in our fountain. Crafts will include making fans, pom-pom caterpillars, and “stained glass” bookmarks. Stay tuned for more activities!
