For over 15 years, the Wethersfield Historical Society and the Robert Allan Keeney Memorial Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving have been providing this concert series for the enjoyment of the public. We are delighted that the proud tradition of Keeney Koolers past continues in 2019 with an outstanding lineup of first-rate Connecticut talent…
Performances take place Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm on the front lawn of the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center (200 Main Street). Bring a blanket or lawn chairs, a picnic supper, and your dancing shoes. In the event of inclement weather, concerts will move indoors to the ballroom on the second floor of the Keeney Center. 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.
