Tunes at Noon are back

FLINT — In case you’re wondering how Stella got her groove back… the answer is simple. She spent her summer at Willson Park in downtown Flint, enjoying free live music at the ever-popular Tunes at Noon Festival!

And whether you are looking to get your groove back, or just give it some much needed maintenance, why not make plans to pack a lunch and head downtown any day, Monday through Friday, from now until Aug. 17, to enjoy a delicious mix of jazz, blues, rock, gospel and more performed by talented Michigan musicians.

“It’s like chicken soup for the soul!” said Greg Fiedler, President and CEO of the Greater Flint Arts Council. “The music starts at 11:45 a.m. and keeps flowing until about a quarter past one in the afternoon. You can brown bag it or grab something to-go from one of our many great restaurants downtown, then sit back, listen and let your spirit soar!”

Once again, Tunes at Noon will be staged in the serenity and shade of Willson Park, sandwiched between the University of Michigan-Flint and the Flint Farmers’ Market on Kearsley and First Streets.

So, bring your blanket, or a couple of lawn chairs and get in the groove.

“Once you get a taste of our free concerts, you’ll want to keep coming back for more,” promises Fiedler. “Every year, this is one of our most popular festivals on the schedule.”
