  • Ives Concert Park Partners With New Promoter

    DANBURY — While we may not have seen the worst of winter yet, the board of directors at Ives Concert Park already is looking ahead to next summer. The outdoor concert venue on the Western Connecticut State University westside campus in Danbury has, since 1975, hosted an impressive array of classic rockers, up-and-coming indie artists, country crooners, and more. Now, thanks to a new partnership with New York City-based promoter The Bowery Presents, Ives Concert Park will be able to offer an even more impressive array of performers for its Summer Concert Series.
