Summer Concerts

Washington Trust Bank sponsors summer concerts at Arbor Crest

Proud Sponsor of the 2017 Summer Concert Season

Announcing the 2017 Summer Concert Schedule at the Cliff House Estate!

Proudly sponsored by Washington Trust Bank

With over 40 concerts to choose from, there’s something for every taste — from rock and country to blues and jazz (click HERE for a printable PDF of the schedule). And there’s always room for dancing! (For general attendance information, please scroll down to the details after the schedule of bands and artists below.) 

Every Thursday, our “Pairings by the Patio” series showcases local artisans and their artwork, combined with live music performed on the Patio Stage just outside the Tasting Room (general admission, $5* at the gate).

Every Sunday, “Concerts on the Cliff” brings the best in regional bands to the main Estate stage in the courtyard of the Cliff House (general admission, $10* at the gate).  

In addition to great wine and live music, we’ve got tasty concert food too. Our own “Al Fresco Tapas & Entrées” (available in the Tasting Room and by the Cliff House), range from snacks to the makings of a perfect picnic dinner. And new on Sundays this year, the Garlic Truck from the White House Grill will be parked on the gatehouse-side of the Tasting Room, with fresh selections each week. Wine, garlic, and baklava, with a live music chaserthat’s how we roll into Summer at the Cliff House Estate!



* Summer Concert Punch Cards are now available in the Tasting Room! Get $100 in admissions for just $80. (Get one for yourself, share one with a friend, give as a gift, treat your star employees — everyone loves our Summer Concerts!)
