Point Richmond Music (PRM) has unveiled the lineup for five free outdoor concert dates this summer.

The 16th annual summer concert series occurs on the second Friday every month from June through September, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Performances occur at PRM’s outdoor  venue at Park Place and Washington Avenue, and every concert features opportunities to participate in arts and crafts booths, face-painting for children, dancing in the streets and a wide variety of food from local businesses and food trucks.

PRM is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that encourages concert-goers to fetch drinks from its no-host bar, which are not only served in reusable, biodegradable cups, but directly support the music series via the proceeds from their sales. The beverage offerings will be delicious and homegrown, as they will include Richmond-made craft beer from sponsors-in-kind East Brother Beer Co. and Benoit Casper Brewing.

“Our hard-working volunteers and generous sponsors come together year after year to produce an annual music series that celebrates diversity and promote the arts,” said Andrew Butt, PRM’s board president.
