The Washington Square Association Announces 2015 Dates for the Washington Square Music Festival

We are very excited to announce the dates for the Washington Square Music Festival, one of our favorite event series of the year.   Spring is in the air and June seems almost graspable.  As the weather warms, so will the music fill our park with 4 concerts in the park starting June 16th.   For more information on the programs, read below.   

The music is free for all of the park to hear.  Supporting the Washington Square Music Festival is one of the key charters of the Washington Square Association (feel free to become a member), along with the Christmas tree lighting, children's events and much, much more.
