“We’re very excited to bring live music to Barkley Village,” said vice president of marketing and leasing Neal Swanson, “we’re hopeful that the combination of really great live music with local food and beer will be the perfect way to showcase the new park as a new outdoor concert venue in Bellingham while raising money for a tremendous cause.”

Barkley Village chose Lydia Place, Bellingham’s leader in the fight against homelessness, to partner within the first-ever concert event. “We are grateful to Barkley Village for using their new park to connect community and compassion in one festive and inclusive event. Homelessness is a complex issue that has far-reaching impacts on our community.” Emily O’Connor, Executive Director for Lydia Place said, “Creative partnerships like this and support from our neighbors makes it possible for our community to make progress toward ending homelessness.”

This is an all-ages concert with adult tickets available for only $20 (includes two drinks), youth tickets for $10 (12 & under), and children 5 and under are free.
