The Sweet Taste of Summertime at PLU

PLU’s annual Fruit Festival lunchtime concert series kicks off June 11 and continues one Wednesday a month through August.

Each event focuses on one delicious summertime berry and features summery desserts and free live music and entertainment.

The concerts are as casual as can be: Everyone is invited to bring a lunch and relax. Fresh fruit desserts are free with a PLU ID, or $2.50 otherwise (cash only), while supplies last.

Each lunch/concert runs from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at Red Square. Parking and entertainment are free.

Here’s the lineup:

Strawberry Festival

Wednesday, June 11

Entertainment: Off the Hook (classic funk and soul), juggler Roberto the Magnificent and the Elk Plain Dance Ensemble.

Raspberry Festival
Wednesday, July 9

Entertainment: the Funaddicts (jazz, classic rock and more).

Blueberry Festival
Wednesday, Aug. 6

Entertainment: folk-rock musician (and PLU alum) Peter Benjamin ’97.
