Monroe County Executive Adam Bello, along with the Ontario Beach Program Committee on June 1, announced the 2023 return of the popular Wegmans Concerts by the Shore series to Ontario Beach Park, 50 Beach Avenue, 14612.
The series kicks off at 7 p.m. on June 7 with a performance by Nik and the Nice Guys. The concert is free to the public.
“I can’t think of a better way to spend a summertime Wednesday evening than enjoying a free family-friendly concert in beautiful Ontario Beach Park,” said Bello. “I’m grateful to Wegmans, the City of Rochester and the Ontario Beach Park Program Committee for helping to carry this tradition on into its 37th year.”
