Each Year, The Yorktown Lions organize a Summer Concert Series that is free to all residents of Yorktown and their guests. The concerts are generously sponsored by the local businesses and citizens of Yorktown and its surrounding hamlets.
These community building/service events give you a chance to come out, meet some neighbors and have a good time. There will be food vendors at and around the concert venue or you can pack a nice picnic basket for the show.
We look forward to seeing you there!
